A Study on Quality and Quantity of Wastewater Generated Through Centralized Kitchen Wastewater
Abstract: The fresh water use for different urban activities may lead towards generation of wastewater. The wastewater generated from kitchens is about 60 % of total water used in various kitchen activities. The kitchen wastewater is contaminated by high concentration of organic matters which imparts rise in BOD and COD parametric value. Detergents used for washing kitchen appliances may contribute chemicals in wastewater. The lack of awareness about adverse effects may force human beings to dispose kitchen wastewater with high concentration of biodegradable pollutants directly on receiving water body. This may cause degradation of environment and raise issues related to environmental health.
