Industrial effluents released by various industries is a major problem today. These effluents are disposed either treated or untreated over land. Then it interacts with the soil and environment. This causes variation in geotechnical properties of soil. This variation can affect the construction and safety of building structures. So it is necessary to study the effect of various industrial effluents on soil properties. In this paper, an attempt is made to study the effect of textile effluent on
