The textile industry is one of the world's major consumers of water, and its effluent comprises a variety of contaminants such as dyes, degradable organics, detergents, stabilizing agents, designers, inorganic salts, and heavy metals. There is a lot of color. Water pollution has a large impact on the photosynthetic activity of aquatic plants and animals. Because of the presence of heavy metals and chlorine in man-made colors, it may also affect human health. Before being discharged into a body of water, textile wastewater effluent must be treated. In this study, pollutants found in wastewater from textile companies will be discovered, along with techniques to clean up wastewater and how they affect human health and the environment. Duringthis researchwe have discusse the Causes and Overcome Techniques of Textile Effluent as a Potential Problem for Environmental and Human Health.
