This paper deals with the study of surface water treatment by ultrafiltration process for drinking purpose. Total Dissolved Solids contains organic and inorganic impurities. The experimental studies were carried out using an ultrafiltration pilot plant and raw water from Pravara River as feed. After the primary treatments the surface water was treated through microfilteration which removed the maximum total suspended solids. Then it was processed through Ultrafiltration membrane process which was capable for the removal of large amount of total dissolved solids from the surface water. After treatment of water by ultrafiltration it meets the water quality standards given by Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB), Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and world Health Organization (WHO).
