This study aims at describing the parameters of waste stabilization technique using anaerobic and facultative ponds. The wastewater samples were taken from raw sewage & final treated water and analyzed physicochemical parameters like conductivity,total hardness and chemical oxygen demand in the 2009. The efficiency of conductivity, total hardness and chemical oxygendemand was significant. The waste water treatment plant system using different materials showed excellent potential forconductivity, total hardness and chemical oxygen demand removal from waste water treatment plant. The results of analysis oftreated water for conductivity, total hardness and chemical oxygen demand (COD) indicate that the final treated water can beused for industrial cooling and agricultural purposes.
