One of the major contributors to pollution problems in India is Textile effluent. Coupled with, large quantities of untreated wastewater lead to a rise in the water pollution level. The present study was undertaken to investigate the pollution potential of textile effluent draining into the Buddha Nullah stream of the Ludhiana district of Punjab. Discharge from various industrial outlets was collected for the study. Physicochemical analysis (pH, water temperature, total dissolved solids, total

Resulting estimates revealed that the value of pH, water temperature, total dissolved solids, total suspended solids, biochemical oxygen demand, and chemical oxygen demand is much higher than the recommendation of WHO and unfit for human consumption. Such discharge has to recycle even for industrial and irrigation purposes.
