Abstract
Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world, making it one of the largest water consuming industries. Approximately 150 liters of water is required per cu. m. of concrete mixture without considering other applications of water at the concrete industry. But water is a critical environmental issue and water supplies and water quality are becoming more limited worldwide. The waste water sample is collected from "MYLSANDRA WASTE WATER TREATMENT PLANT", water sample used is Primary Treated Waste Water (PTWW), which was analyzed for its chemical properties in laboratory. In M20 concrete mix the potable water was replaced with the PTWW in different dilution ratios of 20%, 40% and 100%. The compressive strength result obtained from treated effluent showed an increase in 10.68% for 28 days compared to fresh water. From this study, it is believed that the recommended reuse of waste water in plain concrete works will indirectly conserve the scarce water resources of the study area, as the regular water sources would be concentrated on supply of drinking and other potable water usage.
