National Green Tribunal taps IIT's expertise

Source: The Hindu, Date: , 2014

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Tuesday reserved its final orders on two applications, one with regard to dumping of waste and debris and encroachment in the Yamuna’s floodplains, and the other challenging civic agencies’ coverage of storm water drains hampering drainage, while it sought technical advice from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, before passing its final order. “There should be a prohibition on discharge of sewage into the Yamuna. At present, sewage is being discharged into storm water drains at 28 main points. Take this in a separate pipeline and take it 80 km away from the city, build a sewage treatment plant and ensure the sewage is treated entirely,” said Justice Swatanter Kumar before issuing the order on Tuesday.
