This study aims in understanding the physical,
chemical and biological conditions of Yamuna River,
which flows through Noida, Uttar Pradesh. The water
from this river is not being used by residents due to its
highly polluted contents which leads to high Turbidity.
This work aims in treating the river water using organic
purification which consists of three bio coagulants, which
are Moringa oleifera, Tamarind seeds and activated
charcoal using rice husk. These were used as locally
available natural coagulants in this study to reduce
turbidity and other parameters.
Optimum dosage of Moringa oleifera seeds Powder,
Tamarind seed powder and activated charcoal of rice
husk was found to be 0.4g/l, 1g/l and 3.5 g/l respectively.
The percentage reduction in turbidity after treating the
river water with Moringa Oleifera Seeds Powder,
Tamarind Seeds Powder and Activated Charcoal from
rice husk was found to be 24.07%, 65.82% and 78.14%
respectively. Among the three Biocoagulants used,
activated charcoal was found to be the best as it reduced
78.14% of turbidity of the river water.
