The coir industry is one of the major agro-based industries contributing significantly to the national income. This work deals with the characteristics of the waste water discharged from the coir industry. The results presented here are the physical, chemical and microbiological analysis of the waste water samples collected from the coir industry. The analysis indicates the Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and nutrient such as nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, calcium and magnesium were recorded high amount and a microbial populations including bacteria, fungi and algae in the waste water.
