The paper briefly describes the importance of algae, vetiver grass, hydrilla and water hyacinth (Aquatic plant) in the phytoremediation of coal mine and municipal wastewater bio-purifications. A laboratory scale experiment was conducted by taking two mines, one municipal wastewater and which was compared with tap water treated by algae, vetiver grass, hydrilla and water hyacinth. The water samples were collected from mines from Jharia, Dhanbad. Municipal waste water was taken from Bekar Bandh, Dhanbad and were compared with the tap water from C.I.M.F.R, Barwa Road, Dhanbad of Jharkhand. Utilization of aquatic plant for bio-treatment of wastewater was a common practice all over the world. Use of Algae, Vetiver grass, Hydrilla and Waterhyacinth for the treatment of different types of wastewater were being practiced by researchers. But treating mine water by these aquatic plants were not in common. With the view mine water, municipal waste water and tap water were compared by the different combination of algae, vetiver grass, hydrilla and water hyacinth for the reduction or increases in the chemical properties studied e.g., pH, Sulphate, nitrate, and iron content of the water. Experiment proved that the significant reduction in pH, Nitrate, Sulphate, Iron with Algae, Vetiver grass, Hydrilla and Water hyacinth in all the water samples taken for this study. This type of experiment will have more scope by conducting it at the bigger scale to get accurate results.
