Chandigarh, November 10

Pulled up by the National Green Tribunal (NGT), the Municipal Corporation (MC) has plugged all six outlets releasing sewage into Sukhna Choe and N-Choe.

On the directions of the Green Tribunal, the Chandigarh Pollution Control Committee (CPCC) had conducted a surprise inspection of all outlets discharging sewage into Sukhna Choe and N-Choe on September 18.

In its report, the CPCC stated that sewage was flowing into Sukhna Choe at four places — Kishangarh, Shastri Nagar, Daria village and the MC Pump House behind Central Poultry Development Organisations, Industrial Area, Phase I, and into N-Choe at two places — Garden of Springs where sewage comes from Mohali and Sector 36 area near the CFSL.

On a report of the CPCC, on November 2, the NGT directed the MC to conduct a resurvey of the locations where sewage was being discharged into Sukhna Choe and N-Choe within three days. Both seasonal rivulets of the city flow into the Ghaggar river near Zirakpur.

In compliance of the directions of the NGT, all six points where sewage was being discharged into both seasonal rivulets had been fixed, said a senior official of the MC.

The directions came from the Green Tribunal during a review of the status of waste water generation and treatment in Chandigarh with regard to the Ghaggar river.

In its report, the Chandigarh Pollution Control Committee (CPCC) has submitted that sewage is being discharged into Sukhna Choe and N-choe at six places in the city.

Debendra Dalai, Member Secretary, CPCC, stated that it had been decided that the Mohali Municipal Corporation would take necessary steps to stop the discharge of sewage into N-choe from the Garden of Spring outlet.
