NOWHERE TO HIDE Sept 1 2018 Pg. 7 The Hindu Kanpur's tanneries are perceived to be the primary source of industrial pollution in the Ganga Shitla Bazzar in Kanpur is a major industrial cluster of tanneries that drains to an underground severage network that eventually empties into the Ganga. Usually the area is food with characteristic odour of sewage trains everywhere, with usual acrid assault of methane, ammonia and hydrogen sulphide
Sept 1 2018 Pg. 7 The Hindu Sometimes the sewage water turns red, then green depending on what dyes are being used to treat the animal hide The people near the area are mostly affected by diarrhoea. Kanpur generated 450 MLD(million litres per day) of sewage but can treat only 160-170 MLD. The NMCG(National Mission for Clean Ganga) was bought by the present government to draw attention towards the degrading quality of Ganga due to unsocial human activities.
Sept 1 2018 Pg. 7 The Hindu The cities salty water and a ready supply of bark from the babool tree which makes for a good tanning agent,were among the reasons why the tanning industry took strong roots in the city. In 1984 an Environmental activist and lawyer filed a public interest litigation in the Supreme Court claiming that the tanneries were emptying toxic and untreated effluent straight into the Ganga As a result the tanneries were mandated to install primary treatment facilities before they released water
Sept 1 2018 Pg, 7 The Hindu In 1985 the government announced the first of its Ganga cleaning drives, the Ganga Action Plan (GAP). Under GAP, it established a CETP that was equipped to treat 36 MLD of polluted water. The tanneries contribute to no more than 2% of the pollution load in the Ganga.
