Abstract
In the present study effluents and soil samples from the nearby paper industry collected in Bhimavaram district of Andhra Pradesh and analyzed for various physio-chemical parameters like pH, TDS, TSS, TRC, TVS, TS, BOD, COD, DO. The inferences were drawn on the basis of analysis. In general, a considerable decrease in the concentration of total suspended and dissolved solids, chloride, calcium, sodium, manganese and cobalt occurred during the flow of effluents downstream. The lateral seepage of paper industrial effluent to agricultural lands increased the soil pH and electrical conductivity (EC). At shorter distances from point source, the lateral seepage of effluent increased exchangeable Na and extractable Cr, Zn, Mn, Pb and Ni in soil.
