The effect of addition of effluents from the tannery complex of Jalandhar (Indian Punjab) on the composition of raw sewage water, being used by the farmers for irrigation of crops, was studied. Samples of sewage water were collected from the 4 sites of the sewage drain before and after the addition of effluents into the sewage drain. Addition of tannery effluents decreased the pH and increased the electrical conductivity (EC) of the sewage drain water.
