    Abstract :

    Environmental pollution remains a serious issue in the developing world, affecting the lives of billions of people, reducing their life expectancy and damaging children’s growth and development. The discharge of effluents from pharmaceutical industries into the environment could easily lead to contamination of surface and groundwater with diverse drug active ingredients, the long effect of which may be detrimental to the health of those that use the water. Out of various pharmaceutical industries in India, the study area chosen is Hoskote. A sample of surface water around the industries at various points is collected and a composite sample is prepared. Analysis of water was done for pharmaceutical parameters like phenol, phosphate, chromium, BOD, COD, pH, Total Solids, Coliforms and Sulphides. The result is then compared with BIS standards. Ground water quality for pharmaceutical parameters were within the permissible and surface water samples in Hoskote industrial area and its environs have phosphate beyond the permissible limit as prescribed by Indian Standards. The mathematical model precisely shows the variation of BOD and phosphate with respect to time. Suitable biotechnical remedied are followed to remove Phosphate from pharmaceutical effluents. The parameters above the maximum permissible limits such as Phosphate was removed up to 90% using Cyanobacteria within 15 days.
