With development the cost of water treatment is increasing and the quality of river water is not stable due to suspended and colloidal particle load caused by land development which causes pollution and make water unfit for consumption. During the rainy seasons the turbidity level increases and the need for water treatment chemicals increase as well, which leads to high cost of treatment which the water treatment companies cannot sustain. Due to the increased price of treatment water that reaches for drinking purpose is not properly treated. A natural alternative for water coagulant to treat the turbidity will be a great effort for water treatment for drinking purpose .Many studies have found Moringa oleifera as the best natural coagulant, that can replace aluminum sulphate (Alum) which is used widely all around the world. Moringa oleifera seeds to find the active constituents which are responsible about the coagulation mechanism and improving the coagulation property. This will help in producing this alternative locally as Moringa oleifera which is a great benefit for water treatment for drinking purpose.
