EDMC stops disposal of silt at Geeta Colony site 22.4.2018 The Tribune

New Delhi, April 21

The East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has stopped disposal of silt at a site in Geeta Colony.

Silt removed by various agencies from drains will now be disposed at a new facility at Singhola village near Singhu border.

Disposal of silt at the facility in Geeta Colony has been discontinued due to litigation, according to a circular issued by the civic body.

All agencies concerned, including Delhi Development Authority (DDA), Delhi Jal Board, Irrigation and Flood Department, have been notified to send the silt removed by them from drains and otherwise to the new facility at Singhola.

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.

The new facility at Singhola is situated near a Delhi Jal Board sewage treatment plant on NH-1. – PTI

Even the relevant provisions of the MC laws are not being followed properly and the water body is slowly turning into a huge dump. Blame mainly lies on the people who are dumping waste directly into the water. However, the civic bodies have failed to take ...
