The study sites were dumping yards of industrial effluents located at Devgudariya and Pithumpur of Indore (M.P.) for present study. These dumping yards were heavily contaminated with effluents from industrial wastes of different industries along with domestic sewage and agricultural operations. The concentrations of cadmium in soil and sludge measured firstly and then bacteria were isolates from soil and sludge and finally degraded through the bioremediation. The Bacterial strain was employed for removal of Cd2+. The main objectives were to study the effect of mutagens on Bioremediation to detoxify and degrade environmental contaminants like "heavy metals" by the use of "microorganism or microbial processes".
