Abstract

Arsenic is most abundant element on the Earth and found in groundwater in both + (III) and + (V) oxidation states. If taken in sufficient quantities, arsenic can pose a threat to human health. In the rural area without awareness or high treatment cost it can consumed directly by local people. To reduce the effect on arsenic on drinking water medicated natural occurring plant seed is used for removal of toxic substance. In this study Moringa oleifera is used as coagulant material to reduce the toxicity of drinking water. Moringa oleifera is that seed which proved and optimized this problem in rural area. It can be reduced 91% of arsenic and 93% of hardness from drinking water.
