Abstract:

An experiment entitled “Effect of municipal sewage on soil properties and build up of heavy metals in vegetable crops grown in vicinity of Jaipur city” was undertaken with the aim to assess the suitability of sewage water for irrigation and their effect on the soil properties. Sewage water samples from Amanishah Nala and tube well were collected and analysed to Judge their suitability for irrigation. Soil samples from the fields irrigated with sewage, dilute sewage and tube well water were collected and analysed. The sewage water from Aminishah Nala contain higher values of metallic cation (Zn, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Cd and Cr), however, the metallic cations (Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb and Cd) content were above the recommended maximum concentration. The use of sewage water for irrigation in light textured soil of Jaipur, microbial biomass C, N, P and alkaline phosphatase and dehydrogenase activity decreased in sewage irrigated fields. A higher inorganic and organic loading of sewage water with degradation of soil biological properties under study call for passing of the sewage water through an effluent treatment plant before being diverted for irrigation.


Keywords: Sewage water, Heavy metals, Soil microbial biomass and Soil enzyme.
