Water and Waste Water Analysis Laboratories are one of the most important laboratories of the Civil Engineering Department, where students perform experiments and lab work required by environmental engineering courses, and research work of their final projects. The labs also serve the faculty members of the environmental engineering specialty to carry out their research projects. In addition, the labs provide societal services by conducting technical studies and laboratories analyses acquired by both private and public sectors in the fields of water, wastewater, air, and solid-waste engineering.
The laboratories compose modern and technically advanced instruments needed for water, wastewater and air quality, and noise level analyses. The labs have also many in-situ devices and equipments to perform different types of measurements and to take grab and composite water, wastewater, soil and air samples.
Environmental engineering lab helps in the pollution prevention as air, water and noise testing is done in the lab. As a result of these tests, various remedies can be suggested to reduce the environmental pollution. The purpose of this lab is to make the students aware of the dangerous effects of environmental pollution. With these tests environmental protection agency can keep a check on the hazardous emissions by any industry and can protect health of common man, water toxicity, land spoiling and air pollution.
The Water & Waste Water Analysis Laboratory of Civil Engineering deparment has following equipments such as US-VIS spectrophotometer, Respirable Dust Sampler, Distillation Plant, Digital Turbidity meter, Conductivity meter, DO Meter, Muffle Furnace, Oven, Orbital Shaker, BOD Incubator, COD digester etc.
Environmental testing and analysis provides critical information that should be considered before and during a major project
To quantify the water and wastewater pollutant
To measure the concentration of air pollutants
To analyze the characteristics of water, wastewater and ambient air
To study the growth of microorganism and its quantification
