The present study aims to evaluate treated effluent quality of the dairy industry in terms of irrigation water quality parameters, environment pollution and corrosion potential of treated water. For this, various physicochemical parameters were measured twice a month following standard methods for one year from February 2020 to January 2021. Irrigation water quality parameters - SAR, PSS, ESP, RSC, EC, TDS were evaluated to find the suitability of study area treated water used for watering gardens in industry area. The results revealed that average value of SAR, PSS, ESP and RSC was 3.158, 59.44%, 3.285, and 0.248 respectively. Average value of organic pollution parameters BOD (29.19) and COD (56.48) are within permissible limits(IS-2296, 1982). Calculated average values of LSI (0.427) and AI (12.42) indicated non-aggressive nature of the treated effluent with slight scales to slight corrosion. These results are likely to address wastewater compliance issues related to irrigation and other reuse purposes.
