Sanganer is famous for textile dyeing and printing industries. Water pollution caused by the textile industry is mainly by the release of wastewater coming out from the wet processing operations like bleaching, dyeing and printing etc. During the present study, the physico-chemical characteristics of the textile effluent contaminated soil samples of Sanganer region were analysed by standard methods and found to have great variation. Soil samples were highly coloured, foul smelling and alkaline (pH 8.8) and contained trace metal ions with concentrations values which were not in compliance with standards. The pH of the samples was alkaline in nature (8.0-8.8). The values of electrical conductivity ranged from 0.19-0.81 mmhos/cm. The amount of % organic matter and % organic carbon ranged from 0.31 - 0.41% and 0.18 - 0.24% respectively. The effluent from the textile industry was the major source of pollution which will affect the flora and fauna existing in such environment. Thus, there is need for treatment of textile effluent before they are discharged into the environment.
