A REVIEW PAPER ON STUDYING MECHANICAL AND DURABILITY PROPERTIES OF M25 GRADE CONCRETE USING STP TREATED WATER (KEY IJP************835)
Due to growing agriculture, urban and industrial needs, water tables in every continent are falling, by this the drinking water resources are becoming scare. The higher utilization of concrete leads to an increase of water demand gradually which effects the environment. Approximately 150 liters of water is required per m3 of concrete mixture. Considering waste and washing out of equipment at the concrete mixing plant and trucks for transporting the concrete, water consumed is approximately 500 liters per m3 of concrete. Not many have studied the use of sewage treatment plant effluent water in concrete. The utilization of STP water could be an appropriate solution for sustainable development in terms of minimizing environmental pollution and water scarcity. Keywords: sustainable development,water demand, minimizing environmental pollution.
