Abstract

An attempt was made to assess the impact of pharmaceutical waste water on both receiving water and soils at Kandivalasa Gedda. The water samples were collected and analyzed for nineteen physicochemical parameters and the values obtained were compared with standards prescribed by Central pollution control board. Then the corresponding Water Quality Index (WQI) and Correlation Coefficient were worked out for the observed quality parameters. Analysis of results showed that the water samples are unfit for drinking water. Soil samples were analyzed for twelve parameters and results elucidated that soil is not suitable for agriculture practices.
