Surfactant-spectrophotometric method for Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) coupled with acridine orange (ACO) reagent has enhanced sensitivity for determining anionic surfactant (AS) contaminants, including dangerous chemicals incorporated in the ground and surface potable water through various industrial and domestic sources and has been utilized in a potentially reactive urbanized industrial site of Central East Chhattisgarh (Durg-Bhilai). This paper focuses on the potential application of the method, a patented technology, on domestic, potable, agricultural and industrial sewage waste in this potentially urbanized site (Durg-Bhilai) of Central India. The study identifies the major pollutant spots the source and the points of its spread that would be helpful in identifying not only the potential sources of contamination but also the reasons embarking the mobility of the surfactant spread. Further this work also tends to determine the viability of these potential applications as applied to a large area.
