Chennai: Corporation of Chennai had earlier requested for concurrence of Chennai Metro Water Supply and Sewerage Board (CMWS & SB) for the treatment of Trade Effluent released from Pulianthope Slaughter House at 110 MLD STP at Kodungaiyur and permission for transportation of 20 KLD per day trade Effluent generated from the Slaughter House through tanker lorries to the STP at Kodungaiyur for treatment and disposal.
The CMWS&SB has accepted the same and has given the concurrence therein on 4.5.2015 and from 5.5.2015 no Trade Effluent from Pulianthope Slaughter House would be discharged outside the premises and will be sent to the Kodungaiyur.
The Effluence from Slaughter House is marked as Red category (Highly Polluting) & Pulianthope Slaughter House has not been treating the Effluence until recently. The Effluence was being let into open connecting the Canals.
The above were submitted by The Counsel for Corporation of Chennai during the NGT hearing on Unlicensed Slaughter House case filed byPeople For Cattle in India, (PFCI)
To add to existing Polluting & Environmental vows, Kodungaiyur will be affected much more when such dangerous Effluence from Puliyanthope Slaughter House are be treated & disposed.
Can this be stopped?
