Abstract: The construction of structures in the world is increasing rapidly. Due to this the demand for the water in construction also increased, with this the ground water levels are decreasing day by day. As we know on the earth surface there is 97.5 % of saltwater and 2.5% of fresh water. So, it is advisable to conserve the water for future generations. It can be achieved by utilizing the saltwater for construction purposes. This project outlines the comparative study of quality of water over strength of concrete structure by using fresh and saltwater (NaCl dissolved). As 90% seas and oceans contain salinity of 3.5% (35 ppp). The cubes are to be casted with fresh and 3.5 % of saline water prepared by mixing NaCl and the compressive strength results for 3, 7 and 28 days and tested compressive testing machine and the results are compared. As sodium chloride mixed water is used in concrete batching, there is either increase or decrease in strength of concrete. To know this strength variation this project also aims at the strength comparison for 3.995, 5, 10, 15, and 20% of NaCl mixed water as constituent of concrete.
