Organic carbon is present mostly in water and soils. It is being transformed in to various forms like dissolved carbon, inorganic carbon and particulate carbon depending on elements, temperature and pressure. The source of organic carbon is food waste, sewage, effluents from sugar industry, distilleries, and paper and pulp industries. Total Organic Carbon (TOC) is a pollutant in water. During organic carbon decay the bacteria consumes dissolved oxygen, thereby makes the water unfit for human consumption. In this present study an attempt has been made to analyze grey water samples for Total Organic Carbon (TOC), Inorganic Carbon(IC) and Total Carbon (TC). TOC values varied from 96 mg/l to 1098 mg/l.
