Abstract:
The wastewater from southern part of the Hyderabad city is pumped towards Southern Sewage Treatment Plant (SSTP), but most of the wastewater is used for agricultural purpose and a little wastewater reaches up to SSTP. Three samples, each from Latifabad unit No. 9, 10 and 11 sewage disposal stations and seven ground water samples from the areas where the wastewater is applied for irrigation were collected and analyzed for ground water quality. The sampling scheme was repeated 6 times during November 1999 to May 2000. The obtained results were analyzed on the average basis and some contamination was recorded in ground water quality with alkalinity, chloride, Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Kjeldahl nitrogen, nitrite nitrogen and residues as compared with EEC standards.
