INVESTIGATIONS ON THE IMPACT OF DISCHARGE OF BREWERY WASTEWATER ON SURFACE AND GROUND WATER QUALITYSOHAIL AYUB AND VAIBHAV SHARMA
An attempt has been made to study the impact of treated brewery wastewater discharge on surface and ground water quality. Surface water samples were drawn from upstream and downstream of discharge point from the Kali Nadi river water situated near the brewery industry. Ground water samples were drawn from government and private hand pumps surrounding villages and nearby location around the brewery industry. The surface water samples were found high concentration of alkalinity, total dissolved solid, BOD and COD. The effluent concentration increases after the industry treated effluent mixes in river. However with time and distance the COD, BOD values start decreasing. In ground water the concentration of alkalinity, fluoride, total hardness and total dissolved solid in some of villages are observed beyond permissible limits.
