Sheena K.N [2] | Bhavia K.K

Abstract: Water is the very essential material to all livingthings for their survival. Good health condition depends on purity of water. Water may exposed to various activities such as industrial, agricultural, domestic etc which leads to the deterioration of water quality. Water quality problem typically associated with high concentration of iron content. Payyoli is a municipality town on the Malabar Coast of Kozhikode. People of Payyoli are facing serious drinking water issues due to the presence of high level of iron content. This study tries to introduce low-cost adsorbents sugarcane bagasse (SCB), coconut coir (COC) and neem leaves (NL) for the removal iron from water. Effect of parameters like contact time, pH and adsorbent dosage on iron removal were determined using each of these adsorbents.
