Fungi have been reported to play an important role in bioremediation processes. Hence the study was attempted using fungi to analyse the bioremediation effect. Results show that pH levels were found to decrease between 7.3 to 7.8 while nitrate levels decreased between 69.9 to 84% and phosphates between 79.2 to 83.4%. The BOD and COD levels showed reduction between 78.6 to 89.4% (BOD) and 82.6-85.6% (COD). Nevertheless, the maximum reduction was noticed in the setup which contained the consortium of organisms probably showing a synergistic effect.
