NGT committee to inspect Kala Sanghian drain today


NGT committee to inspect Kala Sanghian drain today

Jalandhar, December 2

The NGT monitoring committee will visit Jalandhar on Tuesday to inspect the flow of effluents into the Kala Sanghian drain as well as check the status of solid and sewage management projects in Jalandhar.

Officials of seven departments shall be assisting the monitoring committee. The disposal of toxic, industrial effluents into the drain is affecting the villages located nearby. However, despite repeated visits and reprimands, the local administration has failed to curb the flow of effluents and fix non-functional sewage treatment plants (STPs).

During the previous inspection of the drain on November 2, the NGT monitoring committee had decided to impose a penalty on the civic body for causing a heavy damage due to the non-functional STP.

Help of officials of the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB), Punjab Municipal Infrastructure Development Corporation, MC, Punjab Water Supply and Sewerage Board, Punjab State Industrial Export Corporation, Department of Rural Development and Panchayat and Department of Water Resources has also been sought. — TNS
