Water resources are the sources of water that are potentially useful for everyday activities. And now a day this resource is steadily decreasing and getting polluted. Household sewage is directly led into river without any primary treatment. In Residential areas domestic sewage water started playing its major role due to the increasing population. In this experimental investigation, instead of allowing this daily used domestic sewage water into the drainage as waste, it can be recycled naturally by using the roots of the Canna Indica plants and soil bacteria for domestic re-usage such as for Gardening, Flushing of toilets. The main aim of this study is treatment of untreated wastewater from DPCOE campus. The sewage water sample is collected from DPCOE campus (Canteen) and is analyzed for various parameters such as DO, pH, Turbidity, Electrical Conductivity. Then the collected domestic sewage water is allowed for its treatment by flowing it over the Canna Indica plant bed.
Keywords- DO(dissolved oxygen), pH, turbidity, canna indica
