Diatoms are the autotrophic element of aquatic ecosystem each ecosystem have its won flora and fauna. They are common unicellular symmetrical golden or brown green plants in fresh water, marian water and polluted water. They are regarded of pollution indicators. The present paper deals with the study of Diatoms in cement industry waste water.These industry is situated in MIDC area of Beed. To study the diatoms diversity of cement industry waste water during the period of june 2016 to may 2017. Thirty six taxa from sixteen genera of diatoms were recorded from cement industry waste water. In present study sixteen genera of diatoms uiz Cyclotella, Fragilaria, Synedra, Anomoconeis, Cocooneis, Achnanthes, Gyrosigma,Coloneis, Neidium, Navicula, Pinnularia, Amphora, Cymbella, Gomphonema, Nitzschia and Surirella. Seasonal variation study reveals dominance of Diatoms is in the month of summer followed by winter and monsoon. Similarly pH and Temperature is in the month of summer followed by winter and monsoon.
