Industrial processes create a variety of wastewater pollutants; which are difficult and costly to treat. The present study is under taken to assess the level of physiochemical parameters of the distillery spent wash. These parameters will compare with Bureau of Indian Standards. Untreated effluent is found to have high contents of BOD, and low contents of DO. According to the permissible limit suggested the Bureau of Indian Standards the untreated effluents is toxic to plant so it is not permissible for irrigation. The results reflect that the treated effluents are not highly polluted and they satisfy the Bureau of Indian Standards values and therefore can be used for irrigation purposes.It is one of the most complex, and strongest organic industrial effluent, having extremely high BOD values. Because of the high concentration of organic load. The paper reviews the status of BOD, DO and pH values before and after treatment of the distillery wastewater.
