Wagh C.H [5] | Kamat R. S

Abstract: The Sangli city is located at southern part of Maharashtra state in India. The Krishna River enters Sangli city from the northern part and is the main source of water for the domestic, industrial and agriculture purpose of Sangli city. Nearly 55 MLD of water is consumed by the people of Sangli from the Krishna River. Approximately 48 MLD of waste water is generated from Sangli City. The sewerage system as well as treatment facilities provided by municipal authorities have become inadequate due to heavy growth of population. The current sewerage system accounts only for 40-50 % of requirement. The waste water from uncovered sewerage area mixes in natural nallas, which are end into Krishna River. In summer the rate of river water flow is low while the flow of sewage from the nallas in to the river is more which almost results into a sewage drain. The present study is an attempt to study the waste water characteristics and its analysis for the stretch of the Krishna River from Sangli to Haripur.
