Abstract: Physiochemical analysis of waste water effluent of food industry has been an intriguing subject in recent years because of issues related to water pollution. Industrial effluent discharge act as one of the major factor that contributes water pollution. Since literatures mentioning physiochemical profile of food industries effluent from Chhattisgarh origin were few. The present study intends to study physico-chemical parameters and microbial analysis of waste water of food industry

Value of Dissolved Oxygen (DO) was low whereas, high TDS and COD values were observed suggesting high amount of organic matter present in the effluent. BOD level was under the standard discharge range according to Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB). However microbial analysis of effluent indicated high microbial population with gram negative bacteria and some fungal species which suggests that the effluent must need more adequate and proper treatment before its discharge to reduce microbial load so as to prevent contamination of water bodies into which the effluent might get discharged.
