APPRAISAL OF WATER QUALITY INDEX OF TEXTILE EFFLUENT FOR AGRICULTURAL IRRIGATIONG. Mathan, A. Venkatesan and L. Karikalan
The calculation of Water Quality Index of an effluent is a simplest and best method to know the quality of an effluent. The important Physico-chemical parameters for irrigation was analyzed from the collected textile effluent and Water Quality Index of textile effluent was calculated from the measurement of Physicochemical parameters made, which reveals that the WQI of the study effluent was severe. So, from the study it is advised not to use the effluent directly before proper treatment or dilution for agricultural irrigation because the property of effluent may disturb the aim of usage.
