Phuleli canal in Hyderabad is main water supply source for both irrigation as well as human drinking purpose. Quality of the canal deteriorates while passing through Hyderabad city,2nd largest city of Sindh ,Pakistan because highly toxic effluent from plastic factories, illigale cattle pens ,slaughterhouses and munciple sewage water are directly discharge into the phuleli canal without any treatment. Soil is a basic requirement for supporting the life on earth, but all over the world soil fertility decreasing by different ways including waste water and solid waste. In Pakistan soil is polluted by different ways out of which untreated liquid waste is main cause of soil pollution. The sewage and industrial liquid waste released in canals and streams without any treatment, which used for irrigation by which soil get polluted. This study was carried out to find out the facts about soil pollution by sewage, in this purpose Phuleli canal was selected, this canal carry the liquid waste of Hyderabad and for the desired study different parameters were investigated.
