East Delhi Municipal Corporation stops silt disposal at Geeta Colony site 22.4.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
The East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has stopped disposal of silt at a site in Geeta Colony. The silt, removed by various agencies from drains, will now be disposed at a new facility at Singhola village near Singhu border. According to the sources, disposal of silt at the facility in Geeta Colony has been discontinued due to litigation. "All agencies concerned, including the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), Delhi Jal Board (DJB), Irrigation and Flood Department have been notified to send the silt from drains and otherwise to the new facility at Singhola," said a senior EDMC official. The disposal of silt in East Delhi became a problem as its dumping at Ghazipur landfill site was prevented after the collapse of a portion of the dump last year in which two persons were killed. Later, the facility was readied at Geeta Colony but the locals resorted to protest against it. A delegation of Delhi Congress leaders had recently met Lt Governor also to stop the dumping of silt at Geeta Colony. The new ...

Spark it up: Municipal water can be rid of harmful substances using only electricity 16.4.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Harmful organic substances, such as pharmaceutical residues, can be efficiently removed from wastewater using only electricity, say scientists who tested a process called pulsed corona discharge (PCD). Pilot tests by researchers from Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) in Finland showed that pharmaceutical residues, their variants and other similar compounds degrade easily from wastewater because the process is non-selective. "It does not require the vast settling tanks needed by the traditional approach to water purification so a membrane bioreactor plant can be built cost effectively in a smaller area", explains Kimmo Arola, a researcher at LUT's department of Chemical Engineering. PCD is based on the instantaneous contact produced by an electric discharge between a plasma zone and water. In this phenomenon, water molecules and oxygen in the atmosphere create strong oxidants which degrade organic compounds into water and carbon dioxide. The study examined the formation of oxidants on the ...

Maharashtra Pollution Control Board to watch sewage plants in big societies 31.3.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Large housing societies will soon have big brother watching their waste. The Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) will launch real-time monitoring of sewage treatment plants through its Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS) and use the data to set benchmarks. Officials said this will lead to compliances by housing societies that do not have operational common Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs), and also ensure transparency and accountability. Projects of an over 20,000 sqmt are given environment clearances on the condition that solid waste is processed at premises. MPCB member secretary Dr P Anbalagan said the system would apply to societies with over 2 lakh sqft built-up area. Premises which default or fail to meet standards will be served notices, have their water supply reduced and prosecution will be initiated against their office-bearers. "We are developing an interface software," said Anbalagan. "The STPs test water and generate one result every 15 minutes, which translates into four ...
