Abstract: Industrial wastewater is enormously utilizing in irrigation worldwide. It is well known that physico-chemical and biological properties of wastewater influence the plant growth. In the present study, we have investigated the physico-chemical and biological properties of steel industry, Heavy Engineering Corporation Ltd. (H.E.C.) effluent. We found that most of the physico-chemical parameters were comparable to the BIS (The Bureau of Indian Standards) value for irrigation. However, conductivity, sulphate, B.O.D and C.O.D were higher than BIS value for irrigation. Moreover, microbial population was found to be higher in H.E.C. effluent as compared to tap water.
