    Abstract :

    Various estimates and projections indicate an increasing trend in water demand for agriculture, industrial and domestic uses in the coming decades. The discovery of a variety of pharmaceuticals in surface, ground, and drinking waters around the country is raising concerns about the potentially adverse environmental consequences of these contaminants. The areas around Bommasandra are concentrated with pharmaceutical industries. Analysis of water was done for pharmaceutical parameters like phenol, phosphate, chromium, BOD, COD, pH, Total Solids, Coliforms and Sulphides. The parameters tested for surface water are within the limits and surface water samples in Bommasandra industrial area and its environs have BOD, COD, and phosphate beyond the permissible limit as prescribed by Indian Standards. MATLAB is used for preparing the graphs. Suitable bioremediation method was suggested for the removal of effluent. The experimental study proved that bioremedial measure can be effectively applied for the removal of pharmaceutical effluents. The results showed that cyanobacteria was used in removal of BOD up to 85% within 10 days
