The Tribune, Solan, Mar, 2017 : In a bid to check the water quality, the State Pollution Control Board (SPCB) has enhanced its monitoring locations from the earlier 104 sites across the state to 131. The move has been initiated as per the National Water Monitoring Programme undertaken by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) which has notified sampling and analysis procedures for these sites. The board is supposed to undertake the monthly monitoring of water quality with effect from March. Information will be duly uploaded on the board’s site.
