MAYOR'S REPLY IN PPCB CASE

 

CITY VIBES - AUGUST 9,  2019  

Balkar Singh Sandhu, Mayor, Muncipal Corporation, Ludhiana informed that the sewer connections of all the dyeing units of Ludhiana city are connected with the sewer line of Municipal Corporation Ludhiana and that is why, their discharge goes directly to Sewerage Treatment Plants (STP) in Bhattian, Jamalpur and Balloke. It is pertinent to mention that these sewer connections have been connected to the MC line even before 2008 when the STP was constructed and that is why, MC Ludhiana is collecting discharge bills from them. But some dyeing units are discharging more water than the consent.

In the year 2007-08, under the Sutlej Action Plan, the Punjab Water Supply and Sewerage Board had constructed three new STPs at Jamalpur, Bhattian and Balloke. After which, the MC sewer lines were connected to them and as the sewer connections of the dyeing units were already connected to the MC lines, their discharge started going to the STPs for treatment. But these STPs were developed for treating domestic discharge, but when the industrial discharge started reaching these STPs, it affected their efficiency.

I informed that keeping in mind this problem, the Punjab Dyers Association, under the supervision of Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB), started constructing three new CETP's by forming clusters in Focal Point, Tajpur Road and Bahadurke Road. A new pipeline for discharge from dyeing units is also being laid and is connected with these CETP's. This work is going on for quiet some time.

I informed that the PPCB has extended the deadline for completion of the work for completion of these CETPs several times in the past. He informed that the initial was March 31, 2019, which was extended to June 30, 2019 and now this deadline has further been extended under the supervision of Hon'ble National Green Tribunal. The new deadline for completion of Focal Point CETP with 40 MLD capacity is march 31, 2020, for Tajpur Road and Rahon Road CETP with 50 MLD capacity is September 30, 2019.

He further stated that the flow of Budha Nullah water was jointly measured by MC Ludhiana and PPCB and was found to be 597 MLD. By adding the 168 MLD of STP Bhattian, the total sewer discharge becomes 765 MLD and if the 477 MLD water supplied by MC Ludhiana is deducted from the total, there is an extra 288 MLD of effluent flow.

He stated that this extra effluent water comes from industries only, because there is no other source of water.  He alleged that it is often observed the some industries often dispose off their untreated water into the MC sewers and when the MC Ludhiana collected water samples of industries, the PPCB had opposed it. He also clarified that the PPCB is supporting such industries, because they very well know that their water parameters are not as per rules. He alleged that the industries are benefitting from this partisan approach of PPCB.

He stated that due to industrial effluents, the STPs are getting damaged and instead of taking action against the industries discharging untreated water into MC sewer, the PPCB has imposed a fine of Rs.50 lakh. This clearly shows that the PPCB has failed miserably to take any action against such industries  and is merely shifting the blame of their own failures. He added that the STPs that are working at present, industrial effluents are affecting their working, due to which the STPs are not able function properly and the low lying areas are suffering due to overflow of sewerage. The residents are suffering, which is bringing bad name to the MC Ludhiana. Besides this, MC is facing financial burden as the STPs are getting damaged due to inflow of industrial effluents.

I clarified that if the Punjab Dyers Association fail to commission their CETPs within the set deadline, then the MC Ludhiana would snap the sewer connections from their own line, besides the MC would also stop collecting the discharge charges from their dyeing units. He informed that the work on CETPs is being supervised directly by PPCB as a Nodal Agency and that is why, if this work is not completed on time, then its sole responsibility would be of the Punjab Dyeing Association and Punjab Pollution Control Board.
