Assessment of quality parameters of industrial effluent from Khetri copper complex (Jhunjhunu, Rajasthan, India)
Author(s): M. Khichar
Abstract: Industrial wastewater entering a water body represents a heavy source of environmental pollution. A study was conducted on industrial effluent at different sites of Khetri Copper Complex, (Jhunjhunu Rajasthan, India) to determine the physico-chemical parameters, important in assessing the variations in water quality. Various parameters included in the present study are pH, dissolved oxygen(DO), biological oxygen demand(BOD), acidity, alkalinity, total hardness(TH), total dissolved solids(TDS), and levels of chloride, fluoride, nitrate and heavy metals viz copper, zinc, cadmium and mercury. The study was made to check suitability of effluent water for irrigation purpose. A comparative study with World Health Organization standard shows that the water of this region requires suitable treatment before use.
