An increase of industrialization reduces freshwater sources because of the large amounts of water required by manufacturing facilities and pollutants from manufacturing processes pollute the remaining freshwater sources. The large quantity of water usage and pollution relates to the manufacturing of textiles. Wet processes in the textile industries require water of very good quality concerning mainly content of dyes, detergents, and suspended solids. Therefore, a purification treatment to recycle water must have much better performances than for simple discharge according to the limits imposed by legislation. Recycle of sewage and industrial effluent is an effective, dependable and economical way of solving the problem of perennial water shortages. Water recycle helps conserve vast volumes of water, while protecting the environment by reducing pollution. It reduces dependence on unreliable/insufficient water supplies while drastically cutting down on expenses on municipal/ raw/tanker water. This paper focuses on use of recycled wastewater in textile wet processing and comparing whiteness index of cotton fabric with fabric processed with ground water and Municipal tap water.
