GURGAON: The Haryana State Pollution Control Board has imposed an environmental compensation (EC) of Rs 80 lakh on MCG for non-compliance with norms at the Bandhwari landfill site. The penalty has been imposed mainly for violation of the Municipal Solid Waste (Management & Handling) Rules 2016. According to documents the environmental compensation amount has been imposed at a rate of Rs 10 lakh per month for the period from August 2022 to March 2023.
The EC was imposed as samples of leachate from ponds outside the Bandhwari landfill were found to contain toxic substances and chemicals much higher than the permissible limits.
The order stated that, “..you have neither replied nor complied with the directions mentioned in the show cause notice issued vide this office letter dated 19.05.2023. You are requested to deposit Rs 80,00,000/- (Rs. Eighty lakh only) as environmental compensation for the above stated non-compliances from August 2022 to March 2023 to Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB),” an order by Gurgaon regional officer Kuldeep Singh of HSPCB said. A copy of the order is with TOI.
The sample report had mentioned that the levels of several contaminants — such as biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), total suspended solids, oil and grease and conductivity — were on the higher side. All these, the report said, were being discharged into the Aravalis.
BOD is a measure of the oxygen required for bacteria to decompose organic components present in water, while COD is an indication of the chemicals in it.
According to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), BOD and COD in a river or waterbody should be less than 30 mg/l and 250 mg/l, respectively. A higher BOD means a higher bacteria limit and a higher COD means the chemicals present are more than the prescribed limits.
