The aim of this study is to evaluate the quality of sewage generated from 7000 KLD Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) located at Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal Karnataka which is based on the Activated Sludge Technology. The study of sewage quality of this plant is essential as most of the treated effluent discharged into a stream during monsoon and remaining season used for a Gardening purpose. Water samples were collected from the outlet and analyzed for the major waste-water quality parameters, such as pH, Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and residual chlorine. The overall quality of sewage of 7000 KLD Sewage treatment plants will be evaluated by collecting samples. The results of these evaluations also determine whether the effluent discharged into the water body is under limits given by Karnataka state pollution control board (KSPCB) & BIS standards.
