Abstract: Conventional drinking water treatments are often inappropriate in developing countries like India, the main reason behind this is high cost for treatment, lack of inappropriate infrastructure or availability of chemicals and also a health problems. The present study aimed to the evaluation of treatment efficiency of natural coagulant i. e. okra seed extract, commonly available in market. The coagulation ability was evaluated by the use of standard jar test experiment involving water sample (obtained from River Surya of Maharashtra) with various coagulant doses. The positive coagulation activity of okra seed extract was measured on the basis of turbidity removal. It was found from the results obtained that okra seed coagulant was effective in removing the turbidity of surface water because turbidity of water sample considered were removed effectively at an optimum dose of 200mg/l.
