The main objective of this environmental research was to determine the effect of waste water sample on the surrounding ecosystem of Kosamba region, Surat. In this regard, waste water samples were collected from various sampling sites around the vicinity of Kosamba region, Surat using polythene plastic containers. These samples were analysed for the estimation of biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), nitrate and phosphate levels. From the results, our group observed that waste water sample may showed enhancement in BOD, COD along with nitrate and phosphate content as compared to control water sample. In short, potential avenues are required as well as generated for future research work which may tried to maintain or control (recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency) the level of BOD, COD, nitrate and phosphate content around Kosamba region, Surat.
