Closure notice served to nine saree units in Varanasi
Jun '10
For releasing untreated effluents in to Ganga, the UP State Pollution Control Board (UPSPCB) has issued notices of closure to nine saree printing units.

As per UPSPCB's regional officer, closure notices have been issues on June 18 to nine units spread across, Shivpur area, Maheshpur industrial area, Chandpur area, Patia area, Shivratanpur area and Nawabganj area.

The district administration body has been informed about the notice and these nine units will soon be shut down, ensure the officer. In addition, show cause notices have also been issued to 16 other such units.

Last year, in the month of February, three units were shut down, owing to absence of adequate measures to treat poisonous effluents. These units were shut under section 33A of the Water Pollution Act, 1974.

UPSPCB have further announced that, the board will now be cautious and will make surprise checks, ensuring that, entry of untreated coloured water, from saree printing units in Varanasi, in to Ganga, does not take place.

According to a member of the National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA), the release of coloured effluents in to Ganaga consisted of poisonous heavy metals. The untreated effluents from dyeing and printing units comprised of poisonous metals such as chromium, zinc and lead, which can negatively impact the human health. Colour present in the effluents also adversely affects the water-based species by upsetting the photosynthesis process.
