Now-a-days safe and pure water is a major issue all over the world. A research reveals that one third of the world’s people are in water stressed region, and this proportion will be increased to two-thirds in 2025. 80% to 90% of the per capita consumption of water becomes wastewater . Now-a-days wastewater treatment is common in practice to fulfill the water consumption demand. The aim of this project is to determine the feasibility and efficiency of water hyacinth (Eicchornia crassipes) in treating wastewater by construction of wetland. This treated wastewater can be reused for irrigation purposes and in order to improve the groundwater water recharge.
