    Landslides can be stabilized: Expert

    tnn | May 15, 2018, 03:09 IST
    N Kutumba Rao opens thin-section preparation lab during the national workshop, on Monday

    Nagpur: Keeping in mind the increased cases of landslides and with a goal to mitigate its effects, the Geological Survey of India (GSI) and Gondwana Geological Society, Nagpur (GGS) jointly organized a daylong national workshop on ‘Recent trends in engineering geology and landslide studies’ at Auden Hall, GSI, on Monday.

    N Kutumba Rao, director general, GSI, IB Chibber, retired director, GSI, S Natesan, additional director general, GSI, central region, AK Chatterjee, vice-president, GGS, Nagpur, A Thiruvengadam, additional director general, policy support system, GSI and Milind Dhakate, director (G), GSI, central region, were the dignitaries who inaugurated the workshop.

    Rao also inaugurated a semi-automatic thin-section preparation lab during the event.

    Speaking at the function, Chibber, an expert in engineering geology, said, “Engineering geology is a vast field which holds its importance right from something as basic as building homes and hence experts in this field are necessary.”

    “Slides can happen anywhere and sadly cannot be eliminated but can be treated, managed and stabilized for which detailed and well-planned study is needed,” Chibber said. He mentioned the importance of proper analysis on slide-ridden areas by competent people and of proper documentation. He expressed high expectations from the younger tech-savvy generation in the field of geology in years to come.

    Thiruvengadam and Chatterjee expressed concern regarding less experts in engineering geology due to frequent transfers of geologists from one domain to another. Rao encouraged the geologist community to unite and work towards their common mission. “Rather than charging for consultation, we must extend our services to earn our pride back,” he said.

    Further, two technical sessions took place wherein eminent geologists and geoscientists from around the nation such as K Jayabalan, deputy director general, GSI, central headquarters, Sanjiv Kumar, PK Gajbhiye, B Ajaya Kumar, MS Bodas and CD Singh detailed the delegates on subjects such as ‘Tackling adverse geological features during construction stage’, ‘Role of engineering geologist in nation building’, ‘Landslides in Maharashtra’, ‘An approach for landslide risk estimation on a macro scale’ and other. Every presentation and deliberation was supported with relatable case studies making the explanations easier to grasp.

      Water problems continue, but no special GB meet yet

      Anjaya Anparthi| tnn | May 15, 2018, 05:51 IST
      Nagpur: The BJP-led ruling alliance at the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has failed to keep its promise of holding special meeting of the general body to solve the issue of contaminated drinking water supply. Water crisis also continues to plague the city.

      During the last general body meeting on April 20, corporators from all political parties, including BJP, raised the issue of contaminated water supply and crisis. Ruling party leader Sandip Joshi assured on the floor of the House to hold a special meeting to resolve the issue in May. Mayor Nanda Jichkar also assured the corporators raising the issue. But the special meeting has not been organized yet.

      Every month, regular meeting is organized on or before 20th. For holding the meeting, the agenda has to be issued seven days before. The date for issuing the agenda also passed away.

      Jichkar did not respond to TOI’s call.

      Opposition leader Tanaji Wanve said BJP was not at all serious about any problems of the city and is enjoying power. “Citizens are facing severe problems due to contaminated water supply and crisis for the last two months. The summer will come to an end next month. The ruling party should have taken the issues seriously this month itself,” he said.

      Wanve said the office-bearers neglected holding the meeting despite being reminded time and again since the beginning of the month. “There will be no meaning of directives issued in the general body if the meeting is held in the last week of May. Around 15 days are required to prepare minutes of the meeting and send them for implementation. Till then, the monsoon will arrive,” he said.

      Senior BJP corporator Satish Holey said water crisis has continued in his ward. “I pursued the problems with NMC and OCW officials after last month’s general body meeting. I had to suggest measures to solve the problems. Some issues were sorted out but a few remained as it is,” he said.

      Last month, Holey had said that Jichkar had no control over the administration.

        Garbage dumping yard has dumped all waste disposal rules

        From 1999 to 2016, the solid waste generation of Nagpur increased 2.5 times, states a report by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB). In the second capital of the state which is the highest generator of solid waste in the country, the heaps of garbage kept increasing but the rules to manage them remained only on papers.

        Whether related to quality of air, groundwater, maintaining scientific landfill site or treating waste — many major rules are not being implemented at Bhandewadi dumping ground by the concerned agencies.

        On May 11, TOI reported on the groundwater contamination in the area. Following complaints of various health problems among residents, TOI took samples from a few borewells and got them tested at an environment ministry-accredited lab. The results revealed that the groundwater, which is being consumed by thousands of residents, is highly unsafe for drinking.

        To avoid such contamination of groundwater, the environment ministry had formulated stringent norms. According to the Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016, which were laid down by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC), the municipal solid waste should be dumped only at the sanitary landfill site.

        “Waste for land filling shall be compacted in thin layers using heavy compactors to achieve high density of the waste. Non-permeable lining system at the base and walls of waste disposal area is a must. For sites receiving mixed waste or waste having contamination of hazardous materials, a liner of composite barrier of 1.5mm thick high density polyethylene (HDPE) geo-membrane or geo-synthetic liners will be used,” the rules state.

        Such measures can be taken at landfill sites. Bhandewadi’s landfill site ran out of its capacity many years back and since then over 100 crore kilograms of garbage has been illegally dumped at the large portions of land surrounding the landfill site.

        “Landfill sites are specially designed with landfill liners so that leachate from solid waste is restricted and doesn't reach the groundwater. Whereas, at Bhandewadi, the waste is being dumped on any available ground and thus leachate is percolating down and polluting the groundwater,” says Kaustav Chatterjee, founder of NGO Green Vigil.

        The rules further state that usage of groundwater in and around landfill sites for any purpose including drinking and irrigation will be considered only after ensuring its quality. Desirable limits for all the parameters have also been mentioned. However in the test reports, some parameters exceeded the desired limit.

        While the rules clearly state that leachate generated from the solid waste will not be released into open environment, a recent visit to Taj Nagar (Bidgaon) revealed that leachate from the dumping site was flowing through the residential area and was hardly a few meters away from a well.

        Other rules relating to bio-medical waste, hazardous waste and e-waste management are also not being implemented at the site. To control air pollution, the rules state that a landfill gas control system including gas collection system should be installed at landfill site to minimize odour and prevent off-site migration of gases.

        “Ambient air quality at the landfill site and at the vicinity shall be regularly monitored,” they say. However according to the residents, no mitigation measures were taken. “Since over five years, we are inhaling toxic air which has a foul odour,” they say.

        Most importantly, the rules stress that only the non-usable, non-recyclable, non-biodegradable, non-combustible and non-reactive inert waste should go to the sanitary landfill site. However the garbage dumped at Bhandewadi has all types of waste.

        “If the agencies which were awarded the job of treating waste had done it scientifically, Bhandewadi would have hardly 40% of the present quantity of waste. Segregation of waste should have been implemented long back. As the waste is lying without any treatment, the incidents of fires are increasing leading to huge air pollution and threat to human lives,” added Chatterjee.

        Breaches at Bhandewadi
        - Municipal solid waste should be dumped only at the sanitary landfill site
        - Only segregated and non-recyclable waste should go to the landfill

        - Ambient air quality at the landfill site and at the vicinity should be regularly monitored
        - Usage of groundwater in and around landfill sites for any purpose should be considered only after ensuring its quality
        - To avoid groundwater contamination, landfill site should have good quality liners
        - Provisions for management of leachates including its collection and treatment should be made

          Consumer court issues arrest warrant against Nagpur's Gruhlaxmi Construction

          A division bench comprising judicial member BA Shaikh and member JD Yengal also imposed cost of Rs15,000 on Gruhlaxmi Construction and Land Developers’ proprietor Suresh BurrewarVaibhav Ganjapure | TNN | May 15, 2018, 16:00 IST

          NAGPUR: After a city builder failed to appear before the Nagpur circuit bench of State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission, a bailable warrant was issued against him, with directives to the cops, through the police commissioner, to arrest and produce him on June 12.

          A division bench comprising judicial member BA Shaikh and member JD Yengal also imposed cost of Rs15,000 on Gruhlaxmi Construction and Land Developers’ proprietor Suresh Burrewar, for repeated failure to comply with its directives passed last year. His property was also directed to be seized.

          The commission’s crackdown came while hearing complaints by Paresh Kukudkar, Milind Karmarkar and Gattu Chakravarthy, who had applied for residential units in the proposed Gruhlaxmi Towers project of Burrewar in Beltarodi region of city.

          The three complainants entered into different agreements with the builder for booking flats. While Karmarkar paid Rs2.75 lakh, Kukudkar and Chakravarthy paid Rs4 lakh each towards first instalment in 2011.

          As per the pact, payments were to be made in stages with the progress in construction. However, the builder failed to start construction for three years, after which the complainants, through counsel Arvind Waghmare, issued legal notice to him on October 20, 2014. When he failed to respond, they approached the forum, praying for Rs5 lakh compensation and Rs2 lakh for harassment along with Rs25,000 cash to each of them towards physical and mental harassment.

          The forum issued two notices to the builder, but they weren’t served at its address on Central Avenue. It then permitted the complainants to publish a public notice in the newspaper. After the developer failed to respond, the forum decided to proceed ex-parte against him on December 13, 2016, and slapped cost of Rs18.30 lakh for failure to construct the flat scheme. The firm was also told to pay Rs1.10 lakh more to each of the complainants for physical and mental harassment along with litigation costs.

          Additionally, the builder was also told to either provide flat to three complainants or refund their Rs10.75 lakh with 15% interest per annum. It was reported by TOI in its June 19 edition last year. However, Burrewar failed to comply with the court’s directives, which led to issuance of bailable warrant and orders to seize his properties.

            Illegal constructions razed to clear way for Pardi flyover

            TNN | May 16, 2018, 04:07 IST

            The illegal structures were a major obstruction to the construction of the flyover



            Nagpur: The work of flyover on Pardi Road will gain momentum after National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), along with Nagpur Improvement Trust, and Nagpur Municipal Corporation removed encroachments on Tuesday.

            The illegal structures were a major obstruction to the construction of the flyover, and needed to be demolished. In the process, the houses of Ganesh Mankar and 11 other individuals were razed. The houses belonged to Anand Kalash, Sushilabai Gerodia, Dillip Lalwani, Rashmi Chavre and others. To ensure peaceful anti-encroachment drive, 80 police personnel were deployed during the daylong drive.

            Similarly, NMC’s enforcement squad removed illegal constructions in Dighori Square under Nehru Nagar zone. A similar action was carried out in Mahal area. Two truckloads of construction material dumped on footpaths were confiscated. These drives were conducted by assistant municipal commissioner Ashok Patil and enforcement inspector Sanjay Kamble.

              German study questioned NMC’s over Rs 100 cr bio-mining plan

              Manka Behl| TNN | May 16, 2018, 04:03 IST


              The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has taken up bio-mining project as a remedial measure to clean up the waste lying at Bhandewadi. The civic body, which will be spending over Rs100 crore, has awarded the contract for it to a Chandrapur-based private agency. However, the reliability of the process is itself under a cloud.

              A feasibility study conducted by German experts on the city’s waste management last year had categorically questioned the efficacy of the process. “The technology faces challenges because of incidences of huge fire and odour issues,” it stated.

              The study was a part of the ‘Urban Nexus project’ financed by the German Federal ministry of economic cooperation and development. In India, two cities were selected for the project — Nagpur and Rajkot. NMC and the German agency had agreed to study the solid waste management problem in detail and come up with an economically feasible solution.

              The study estimated that more than 18,00,000 metric tonne of unsegregated waste, which is equivalent to 180 crore kilograms, has been dumped at the site since its inception in 1966. “The dump site is subject to frequent fires and has been causing air pollution, odour nuisance and has an adverse impact on the nearby residents. This has raised questions about the operations of the dump site,” the study stated.

              It added that the lack of market for compost and soil derived from the process has affected the bio-mining project. Earlier, TOI had reported that as per experts, segregating the waste is must for bio-mining.

              TOI had recently collected water samples from nearby areas and got them tested at a private laboratory. Results showed that the groundwater was highly contaminated. The German study had also warned of the risk of leachate percolation.

              Citing that the percentage of organic waste and moisture content in the city’s waste is very high, the study pointed out that incineration-based processes are unviable at Bhandewadi. It also ruled out the process of biomethanation in which organic material is converted to biogas under anaerobic conditions. “It is a highly sensitive technology and cannot be suggested for processing the waste in Nagpur. The technology can be used only for segregated waste,” the study stated.

              Recommending a mechanical-biological treatment for the city’s municipal solid waste, the study had proposed implementation of Maximum Yield Technology (MYT) which extracts raw material and energy content from the waste. The study also highlighted the various steps involved in the technology which included mechanical pre-treatment, biological step, biological drying, mechanical material separation, discharged air treatment and water treatment (see infographics).

              As per the recommendations, treating 800 tonnes of waste using the MYT technology would have generated 8.36 megawatt of energy and 213 tonnes per day of refuse derived fuel (RDF).

              The experts who conducted the study had also identified cement plants where the generated RDF could have been used.

              NMC officials said that the German agencies had initially proposed to implement the technology in Nagpur but there was “no follow-up from their end”. “It is not known what why the NMC did not pursue the matter and instead chose to go in for bio-mining,” said sources in the civic body.

              Study | Was a part of the Urban Nexus project financed by the German Federal ministry of economic cooperation and development

              Published | July 2017

              Aim | To find a feasible solution to tackle the problem of solid waste management

              Observations |

              - Segregation of waste at source is not practised by the generators

              - Dump site at poses various risks to human health due to fire, leachate percolation and air pollution

              - More than 18 lakh metric tonne (180 crore kgs) of unsegregated waste lying at Bhandewadi

              - Detailed analysis of weighbridge data revealed that average daily collection of waste is 1,119 tonnes per day

              - Bio-mining faces challenges because of incidences of huge fire and odour issues

              Suggestions |

              - Implementation of Maximum Yield Technology

              - It extracts raw material and energy content from the waste

              MYT | Steps involved

              - Mechanical pre-treatment: Breaks down the waste in different sizes depending on the material

              - Biological step: Addition of process water to ensure uniform consistency

              - Biological Drying: Drying waste in an energy-efficient and economical way

              - Mechanical material separation: Breaking down dry, very homogenous and free-flowing material into various sub-fractions

              - Discharged air treatment: Polluted discharged air is captured and recycled again

              - Water treatment: Sending process water to waste water treatment plant

                NMC to end LED light firm’s tender

                TNN | May 16, 2018, 03:45 IST
                Nagpur: NMC’s electricity department has submitted a proposal for full and final settlement of one of the LED street light contractors to the standing committee meeting convened on May 19. Actually, the NMC had planned to replace all of the city’s approximately 1.26 lakh sodium vapour street lights with brighter and energy-efficient LED ones.

                The civic body had, in May 2014, appointed JK Solutions to replace 26,712 street lights with LED ones in 18 months. The operator managed to replace less than 1,000 street lights since then. Besides, nearly 25,200 street lights on arterial roads and another 37,800 in residential areas remain out of order. Subsequently, the department had served a show cause notice to the firm why the contract should not be scrapped.

                In return, the firm had served a notice demanding over Rs17 crore from NMC including its dues of over Rs8.30 crore. Later, the NMC had moved a proposal to terminate JK Solutions’ contract. After several meetings and deliberations, the firm had agreed for full and final settlement. The NMC will pay it Rs10.15 crore.

                However, scrapping the contract will not hamper the ongoing replacement work as the NMC had decentralized the work to replacement of existing lights by entrusting the job to another eight firms.

                Four more proposals will come up for standing panel’s nod and they include hiring 10 tippers for ongoing rivers cleanliness drive, Rs200 life insurance scheme ‘Janshree’ for students of NMC schools, construction of compound wall for Bhandewadi dumping yard and procuring of two freezer boxes for bodies.

                  Revised plan brings Gondkhairi logistics park closer to reality

                  Anjaya Anparthi| TNN | May 16, 2018, 03:44 IST
                  Nagpur: The Nagpur Metropolitan Region Development Authority’s (NMRDA) plan to develop the first-of-its-kind logistics park between Amravati Road and Outer Ring Road at Gondkhairi and Pendhri is set to become a reality. The project has been divided into four parts, and hassle-free area has been identified for the two parts to be executed in the first phase.

                  With revision in the project, famous resorts like Chokhar Dhani, open garden restaurants like Environment Highway, Sky Garden, Rajdhani etc are safe for some time, since their location is not part of the first phase.

                  The project was proposed five years ago, with preparations in full swing for draft of development plan (DP) of Metro Region. Earlier, the project was planned over 20 sq km area, covering entire land parcel of Gondkhairi village in Kalmeshwar tehsil and Pendhri village in Hingna tehsil. The same provisions were made in the metro region’s DP.

                  However, the project was set to witness strong opposition as prime agriculture land of two villages, and private projects like resorts, open garden restaurants, hotels etc were required to be acquired.

                  NMRDA official told TOI the project has been divided into four parts, of which part-II and III will be taken up first. “These two parts are situated on the other side of Outer Ring Road, towards Amravati. Part-II will be 3.7 sq km and part-III 4.06 sq km for a total of 7.76 sq km. Land parcels coming in these two parts are owned by very few persons. Also, there are no major constructions in these two parts,” he said.

                  An official from NMRDA town planning department said no objections were received to the notification published declaring the boundary of two parts of the project. “Draft of town planning scheme to decide what will come where has been prepared. Detailed project report to come up with estimated cost of the project and works is under preparation. Project execution can begin once draft of TPS is approved by the state government,” he said.

                  The official added the fate of remaining two parts will be decided after completion of first two parts. Till then, the owners of the structures and agriculture land can relax. The chances of the remaining two parts being dropped also cannot be ruled out.

                  The project is one of the five improvement schemes proposed by NMRDA in the Metro Region. It is likely to be the second to be implemented after Sumthana-Jamtha improvement scheme meant for residential projects.

                    MahaMetro to get full possession of Krazy Kastle from June 1

                    Ashish Roy| TNN | May 16, 2018, 02:57 IST

                    Nagpur: The Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) has decided to terminate the contract of Krazy Castle amusement park concessionaire Haldiram Foods on May 31. The land will be handed over to MahaMetro on June 1. The decision was taken at a board meeting of NIT held on Tuesday.

                    MahaMetro had already started work on Krazy Castle as Haldiram has not raised any objection. The concessionaire had already itself dismantled a ride for allowing Metro contractor to dig the foundation of a viaduct pillar.

                    Ashwin Mudgal, acting chairman of NIT, told TOI, “NIT is doing financial and legal vetting of the Haldiram’s contract. It will submit the report to divisional commissioner Anup Kumar. The three-member committee headed by Kumar will decide the compensation amount.”

                    Haldiram has demanded Rs162 crore from NIT. Its lease runs up to 2022 and hence it has sought compensation for loss of business for four years.

                    At present, it is not clear who will bear the burden of compensation decided by the Kumar committee. NIT wants MahaMetro to pay the sum while Metro officials want the state government to foot the bill.

                    Reacting to the development, Kamal Agrawal of Haldiram Foods said, “I will not comment on this issue until I come to know what are the exact terms and conditions of our contract termination.”

                    In September 2017, MahaMetro had sought only half of the 6.4 acre Krazy Castle land. However, Haldiram objected to the proposal stating the park would lose its charm if its size was reduced by half. It demanded that MahaMetro realign its viaduct to prevent acquisition of the land. If this was not possible then the entire land should be acquired and Haldiram should be paid a compensation for loss of business.

                    MahaMetro rejected the demand to realign the viaduct. It pointed out that the alignment of corridor had been finalized through a gazette notification of central government. It would take another notification to get it changed, which was very difficult. Metro officials then prepared a plan to shift the park rides in a way that they got their land and Krazy Castle also remained functional. However, Haldiram owners rejected the proposal.

                    In January this year, MahaMetro decided to seek the entire land from NIT. Gadkari held a meeting on this issue on February 27 and asked NIT to fulfil MahaMetro’s demand.

                      “Waste for land filling shall be compacted in thin layers using heavy compactors to achieve high density of the waste. Non-permeable lining system at the base and walls of waste disposal area is a must. For sites receiving mixed waste or waste having contamination of hazardous materials, a liner of composite barrier of 1.5mm thick high density polyethylene (HDPE) geo-membrane or geo-synthetic liners will be used,” the rules state.

                      Such measures can be taken at landfill sites. Bhandewadi’s landfill site ran out of its capacity many years back and since then over 100 crore kilograms of garbage has been illegally dumped at the large portions of land surrounding the landfill site.

                      “Landfill sites are specially designed with landfill liners so that leachate from solid waste is restricted and doesn't reach the groundwater. Whereas, at Bhandewadi, the waste is being dumped on any available ground and thus leachate is percolating down and polluting the groundwater,” says Kaustav Chatterjee, founder of NGO Green Vigil.

                      The rules further state that usage of groundwater in and around landfill sites for any purpose including drinking and irrigation will be considered only after ensuring its quality. Desirable limits for all the parameters have also been mentioned. However in the test reports, some parameters exceeded the desired limit.

                      While the rules clearly state that leachate generated from the solid waste will not be released into open environment, a recent visit to Taj Nagar (Bidgaon) revealed that leachate from the dumping site was flowing through the residential area and was hardly a few meters away from a well.

                      Other rules relating to bio-medical waste, hazardous waste and e-waste management are also not being implemented at the site. To control air pollution, the rules state that a landfill gas control system including gas collection system should be installed at landfill site to minimize odour and prevent off-site migration of gases.

                      “Ambient air quality at the landfill site and at the vicinity shall be regularly monitored,” they say. However according to the residents, no mitigation measures were taken. “Since over five years, we are inhaling toxic air which has a foul odour,” they say.

                      Most importantly, the rules stress that only the non-usable, non-recyclable, non-biodegradable, non-combustible and non-reactive inert waste should go to the sanitary landfill site. However the garbage dumped at Bhandewadi has all types of waste.

                      “If the agencies which were awarded the job of treating waste had done it scientifically, Bhandewadi would have hardly 40% of the present quantity of waste. Segregation of waste should have been implemented long back. As the waste is lying without any treatment, the incidents of fires are increasing leading to huge air pollution and threat to human lives,” added Chatterjee.

                      Breaches at Bhandewadi

                      - Municipal solid waste should be dumped only at the sanitary landfill site

                      - Only segregated and non-recyclable waste should go to the landfill

                      - Ambient air quality at the landfill site and at the vicinity should be regularly monitored

                      - Usage of groundwater in and around landfill sites for any purpose should be considered only after ensuring its quality - To avoid groundwater contamination, landfill site should have good quality liners

                      - Provisions for management of leachates including its collection and treatment should be made
