Abstract:

A study on “Effect of sewage water on irrigation water quality in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh” was conducted at Department of Environmental Sciences, Advanced Post Graduate Centre, Guntur during 2016-17. Water samples were collected from eight different locations namely Reddypalem, Ring road, Autonagar, Nandivelugu, Manasa Sarovaram, Ponnur road, Lakshmipuram and Collector office road. The samples were analysed for pH, EC, COD and BOD. The pH ranged from 7.1 to 7.5 in which highest pH was observed in Reddypalem and lowest was observed in Nandivelugu. ECw in sewage water ranged from 1.6 to 1.9dS m-1 in which Collector office road was recorded with highest ECw and lowest was recorded in Nandivelugu. COD ranged from 414 to 439mg L-1 and BOD ranged from 290 to 307mg L-1. The organic load was highest in Lakshmipuram area and lowest in the Ring road area. The results obtained from different sampling stations are found to be within the range of Indian standards of Physical-Chemical parameters.
