Abstract: A comparative study for the efficiency of wastewater treatment was carried out for the three options available in Karachi i.e. trickling filter, aerated lagoon and oxidation pond. The analysis of influent and effluent samples was carried out on weekly basis for twelve months. Sewage influent indicates that it is fairly strong and concentrated. The oxidation pond has an edge over the other two system on the basis of effluent quality, economics, operational and maintenance considerations. For developing countries where capital costs, operation and maintenance are the main constraints, oxidation pond seems to be the choice. Chlorine treatment is recommended for disinfection.
