In order to understand the above stated implication. An attempt has been made in evaluation of complete effluent treatment plant of dairy industries. Pollution load parameters analyzed for evaluation of performance of ETP are COD, BOD5 at 20 degree centigrade, TSS, Oil and grease. Mass balance of COD, TSS and Nitrogen are performed to find the fate of pollutants in ETP. Parameter tested was meant for the testing of water for the suitability of secondary effluent for reuse in irrigation. The COD, BOD 0C and TSS removal efficiency of ETP are from 97%, 95% and 94% respectively.  Water used in domestic and industrial applications can become polluted to varying degrees. Water is also used as a transport medium to carry away waste products. As awareness of the importance of improved standards of water treatment grows, process requirements become increasingly exacting. The food industry contributes significantly to pollution, particularly as the pollutants are of organic origin. Organic pollutants normally consist of 1/3 dissolved, 1/3 colloidal and 1/3 suspended substances, while inorganic materials are usually present mainly in solution. Dairy industry is one of the largest water consumers, where water reuse and recycling is a critical challenge. Every production unit requires such a water treatment plant that may tackle unbalanced level of BOD, COD, (total suspended solids) TSS and total dissolved solids (TDS).Our treatment systems provide unique and innovative solution to filtration and screening problems in the dairy processing units.

Key words: Dairy Plant, Wastes, Pollution, COD, BOD and TSS.
