Abstract:

We are facing treated water quality crisis. Treated non complains effluent discharge contaminates land and eco system. It directly affects our food production, human health and well being.

A healthier human future needs urgent action for smart sustained water reuse management. One of the important management tools is ETV (Effluent Toxicity Verification) System.

What is being tested?

 

Most commonly, effluent from industrial or municipal wastewater discharges are tested. ETV system is a method of online bio monitoring Treated effluent toxicity. ETV system determines efficiency of treatment plant and treated effluent quality.

What is ETV (Effluent Toxicity Verification) System?

 

ETV systems were developed as a tool for evaluating the potential harmful effects of treated effluent/effluents discharge into surface water or land.

What are the common causes of toxicity?

 

Toxicity can be caused by chemical, physical or biological factors or a combination thereof. Chlorine, a chemical used for disinfection and ammonia, a by-product of waste are common causes of toxicity.

Our design experiment & merits

Scope 3 4 5 6 End user S. NO Purpose 1 2 CHOLA AQUA TECHNOLOGIES &

In our experiment we test the effect of our treated water on ornamental fishes, which are considered to be very sensitive to any small changes in the water quality parameters. This is to prove our treated water quality, which will be observed regularly by studying the changes in the aquarium, be it fish mortality or plant death. Bioassay test using fishes is being done for a long time, but the fishes selected are hardy in nature. For example few brackish water fishes are selected for studying the toxicity of their environment. Fishes like Mugil cephalus (Mullets), Chanos chanos (Milk fish), Lates calcarifer (Sea Bass), etc… Bioassays using ornamental fishes are very rare and that is why we selected these ornamental fishes and to prove our treated water standards.
