Physicochemical parameters of the influent and effluent water of the Badwai sewage treatment plant were analyzed during January to December 2009. In order to achieve this objective, water samples were collected from eight sampling points and analyzed for different physicochemical parameters like pH, temperature, electrical conductivity, turbidity, nitrate, nitrite, phosphate etc. These parameters were simultaneously monitored in the different stages of sewage treatment plant (STP) using standard methods. These parameters showed distinct seasonal variation. Higher phosphate value than the nitrate is a noteworthy feature during the present study.
