Characteristics of waste water in sewage treatment plant of BHOPAL, (India)
The increasing population has resulted in many problems, most important being producing sewage. Sewage is water-carried waste, in solution or suspension that is intended to be removed from a community. Also known as wastewater, it is more than 99% water and is characterized by volume or rate of flow, physical condition, chemical constituents and the bacteriological organisms that it contains. This study was conducted to determine the pollutants level in final treated water from sewage treatment plant Bhopal and compare with BIS and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines. Wastewater samples were collected from sewage treatment plant Kotra and Badwai sewage treatment plant (STP). Samples were analyzed using pollution indicating parameters such as pH, Conductivity, DO, BOD, COD and using standard methods. Level for BOD and COD are higher then the recommended in Burro of Indian Standard. In view of the Pollution, in this study I was found that final treated water should be treating regularly and carefully for reuse as secondary purposes.
