Abstract: Today, heavy metals are the most serious pollutants. Lead pollution impacts all the systems of the human body. Therefore environmental engineers and scientist have investigated the method to treat heavy metal bearing wastewater effectively and economically. The present study for the removal of Pb from aqueous solution by using low cost adsorbent saponified melon peel as a natural adsorbent. The experiment conducted to study the effects of contact time, Effect of pH, adsorbent dose and initial concentration of lead. The percentage removal of lead maximum 72 %.
