An effluent treatment plant is operating on biological treatment method (Fluidized Aerobic Bio-Reactor) with an average wastewater inflow of 2MLD has been considered for case study. The wastewater is analyzed for the major water quality parameters, such as pH, Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). The effluent samples were collected on a daily basis for a period of one month. The raw wastewater pH was highly alkaline it was then bringing down to neutral which was helpful for biological treatment. The BOD, COD of the treated effluent reduced significantly, where as very small reduction was observed in dissolved solids. Most of all the parameters were within the permissible limits of Maharashtra Pollution Control Board, India.
