Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies, usually as a result of human activities. The planning commission, government of india has estimated from 710 BCM (Billion cubic meter) to almost 1180 BCM in2050.So, It’s very important to treat discharge of untreated sewage in water. A 2007 study found that discharge of untreated sewage is the single most important source of pollution of surface and ground water in India. Samples of sediments can collected by Van Veen grab (25 cm2).Analysis of samples can be done as per National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) protocol. Polymers identified through Micro Raman Spectroscopy or Fourier-Transform Infrared spectroscopy. From Present Study we conclude that once Micro Plastic are released into water little can be done to limit its distribution and effects to environment. So, by reducing plastic use is the best key to reduce micro plastic pollution.
