Reviving a choked Yamuna

Source: The Pioneer, Date: August , 2014

The High Powered Committee on water pollution has suggested 100 per cent treatment of sewage and industrial effluent within three years so that no untreated industrial effluent enters Yamuna. It has also recommended removal of encroachment on floodplains of Yamuna as a part of long-term measures framed to help check water pollution. It also suggested optimum utilisation of treated waste water from Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) and Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs), prevention of dumping of solid waste in drains, utilisation of treated wastewater, rationalisation of charges to incentivise sewer connections, making land available for treatment, storage and disposal of hazardous and demolition waste and notification of sanitation bye laws as short-term measures to check water pollution.
