Abstract: Due to climate change and increasing population demand of water is increasing. In coming days there will be less availability of water for construction industry. On the other hand a huge quantity of water has been released to the nearby stream after treatment from Sewage Treatment Plant by the Municipal Corporations. Reuse of waste water is very less. The waste water collected is mainly from domestic. After secondary or tertiary treatment the water is released. So it is possible to reuse the effluent water for construction (mainly for Concrete casting & curing. As per the literature survey, new combinations are created seven different possibilities to find which the best preferable combination to reuse the water is. This will leads to saving the portable water and also the water can be used for drinking purpose which is current need of the society. This will satisfy need of industry, society & environment. Main focus of this experimental investigation to search possibility to use effluent water for construction purpose individually or in combination mainly for Concrete casting & Curing.
Keywords: Concrete, Curing, Reuse of Waste Water.
