In recent years with industrial and agricultural development, human has increasingly caused serious environmental damages on water, leading to the global shortage of water. Due to high toxicity, high concentration and complicated composition of wastewater from manufacturing agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals, its treatment and purification have become one of the biggest challenges. Reclamation and reuse of effluents and industrial wastewater is occupying major place in the field of water resources management. The present study investigated physico-chemical parameter of the industrial effluent, collected from the Jeedimetla effluent Treatment Plant (JETL). Laboratory experiments were carried out with the aim of studying physico-chemical parameter of industrial wastewater. The observed values of different physico-chemical parameters like pH, Temperature, Electrical conductivity, (EC) Turbidity, Total hardness (TH), Total alkalinity (TA), Total acidity, Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Total dissolved solids (TDS), Sulphates, Nitrate nitrogen, Nitrite nitrogen, Chlorides, Phosphate (ortho phosphate + inorganic phosphate), and Salinity of samples were compared with standard values.
