Wastewater is also used for secondary purposes and must be treated before it is released into another water body, so that it does not cause further pollution of water resources. Wastewater comes from a variety of sources, everything that you flush down in your toilet or rinse down the drain is wastewater and it also come from agricultural and industrial sources. Present study was aimed to estimate the water quality parameter such as COD, BOD, pH and TSS of water from the Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) of Jaganpur area, Dayalbagh, Agra.  Temporal variation in COD, BOD, pH and TSS value of treated water of STP was also assessed. Results indicated that the physico-chemical properties like COD, BOD, pH and TSS is high in untreated sewage water and low in treated water which is used in secondary purposes. It was observed that better water quality was found after treatment. Instead of discharging the untreated water on the nearby bodies of water it is proposed to let it pass through the STP plant.
