Main Article Content
The increasing demand for water due to population growth and globalization has led to sewage or wastewater being used to irrigate
crops. Irrigation with reused water has favorable effects on crops but also poses a threat to the ecosystem, soils, underground water,
and human life. This research article presents an analysis of the physicochemical characteristics of sewage water in Bilaspur City to
determine its suitability for irrigation purposes. The study involved collecting and analyzing water samples from ten sampling sites in
the city. Results showed that the water had acceptable pH and salinity (Chloride). However, it has high turbidity, electrical conductivity,
and biochemical oxygen demand, indicating poor quality of water. The levels of essential plant nutrients, such as nitrogen, phosphorus,
and potassium, were found to be within the acceptable range for agricultural use. Statistical analysis was performed, and Karl Pearson’s
coefficient was determined and analyzed for various physicochemical parameters. The study concludes that the sewage water in Bilaspur
city may be suitable for irrigation purposes after appropriate treatment and management. This research provides valuable insights for
policymakers and municipal authorities in promoting sustainable wastewater management practices for agricultural purposes.
