Storm water stored in the excavations in stone quarries are used for domestic purposes. This water may contains chemicals which are leached out from the explosives used for blasting granites. Main chemicals are Ammonium Nitrate, Potassium Nitrate and Ammonium Sulphate. This research is carried out to find out whether there is any presence of chemicals in quarry water and to test the effectiveness of naturally available ecofriendly Moringa olifera seed powder for its removal. The samples collected were analyzed before and after treatment for various parameters. This showed a reduction in chemical parameters such as Ammonia, Nitrate, and Chloride, Turbidity, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in the samples. It also act as an antimicrobial agent. Thus the application of Moringa olifera seed powder can be used as a treatment method for removing physico chemical and biological contaminants from surface water near quarries
