Clean water is essential for good health. In many developing countries it is still difficult to obtain clean water. The purpose of this research work is to provide information on natural, ecofriendly and cheaper coagulant and antimicrobial agent for water purification. Moringa oleifera Lam. Syn. seed is very effective natural agent used for water treatment. M. oleifera is a tropical plant whose seeds contain water soluble substances that have coagulation activity in water impurities. During this study, surface water samples were collected for treatment by Munaga (Drum Stick tree) seeds in powdered form, resulting in an effective natural clarification agent for highly turbid and untreated pathogenic water. After treatment of seed powder with water samples were analyzed for different parameter like pH, total hardness, chlorides, Ca hardness, alkalinity, acidity, iron, fluoride and six pathogenic microbial species. All parameters were reduced after treatment with seed powder respectively. Findings of this research lend support to earlier works recommending the use of Moringa oleifera seed for water treatment.
