Water samples were collected from Kovalam beach, Kovalam prawn hatchery, Ennore beach and N4 beach. Water sample was cultured in Walne’s medium and Chu’s medium to enhance the algal growth and ability of the algae to produce urease enzyme using M342 medium Water hardness is determined by titrating against EDTA. Urea hydrolysis was done on M342 medium to obtain best urea hydrolyzing algae and detecting urea tolerance levels of algae sample. Biocement was produced in-vitro by incubating it for two weeks and the precipitated biodeposition was filtered and air dried. The porosity of biomass was determined by Scanning Electron Microscope.
