The present study deals with influence of colour wastewater processed at the Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP)situated in the five stars Industrial Area of Butibori in Central India. The efficacy of Common Effluent Treatment Plant(CETP) in Maharashtra (Vidarbha region) employed for treatment of effluent received from industries including Textile and Dyestuff industry. The Effluent of CETP was analyzed for removal/reduction of contaminants like TSS, COD, BOD and color. A significant reduction in TSS, BOD levels but COD and color was observed slightly higher side during the course of treatment in CETP. This is due to higher colour and COD values in dyestuff industry effluent.
