Wastewater treatment is common research interest among environmentalists. Treatment of wastewater for organic matter removal can be carried out by various physical, chemical and biological methods. Treatment by using various biological methods is effective way of organic matter removal. In the present research, characterization of effluent is carried out. The effluent is treated for organic matter removal by using activated sludge. In this investigation about 77 % removal was organic matter was obtained.
