Now that waste management area has been approved in sec123, how will this impact the RE in the nearby sectors like sector 119 which have projects from amrapali, gaur, eldeco and are in the close vicinity of sec 123 - around 2kms?

Here's the source

You think this may be a big blow to nearby areas?

    sector 123 is on both sides of 130mtr roads which lead to noida extension, so this might come adjacent to sector 121 and will not have any effect on sector 119 sector....it is a 25 acres plot and i have seen the levelling happening....

  • Here is the link which shows the direction and location

    Sector 119, Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India to Sector 123, Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India - Google Maps so Sec 123 is adjacent to Sec 122 which is in turn adjacent to Sec 119. Originally the waste area was planned in Sec 122, which was later shifted to the current location.

    I believe the SLF site is opposite to Home121.

    sector 123 is on both sides of noida-greater noida link road.....this is what i meant in my post...it is planned adjacent to sector 121....

  • This review evaluates current epidemiologic literature on health effects in relation to residence near landfill sites. Increases in risk of adverse health effects (low birth weight, birth defects, certain types of cancers) have been reported near individual landfill sites and in some multisite studies, and although biases and confounding factors cannot be excluded as explanations for these findings, they may indicate real risks associated with residence near certain landfill sites. A general weakness in the reviewed studies is the lack of direct exposure measurement. An increased prevalence of self-reported health symptoms such as fatigue, sleepiness, and headaches among residents near waste sites has consistently been reported in more than 10 of the reviewed papers. It is difficult to conclude whether these symptoms are an effect of direct toxicologic action of chemicals present in waste sites, an effect of stress and fears related to the waste site, or an effect of reporting bias. Although a substantial number of studies have been conducted, risks to health from landfill sites are hard to quantify. There is insufficient exposure information and effects of low-level environmental exposure in the general population are by their nature difficult to establish. More interdisciplinary research can improve levels of knowledge on risks to human health of waste disposal in landfill sites. Research needs include epidemiologic and toxicologic studies on individual chemicals and chemical mixtures, well-designed single- and multisite landfill studies, development of biomarkers, and research on risk perception and sociologic determinants of ill health.

  • OBJECTIVE:

    Updating current reviews on epidiomiological studies on health effects of waste landfill sites.
    MATERIALS:

    Seven ecological studies, two health monitoring investigations and two environmental investigations performed between 2000 and 2004 are discussed.
    RESULTS:

    Excesses of risk for cancer incidence, mortality and congenital malformations or no excesses were reported Increasing of low birth weight and different types of symptoms were consistently found. None or very poor environmental data and individual measurements of exposure were available in the majority of the studies. The use of biomarkers and environmental monitoring data to define individual exposure was suggested by some studies.
    CONCLUSIONS:

    The development of new and advanced environmental epidemiology studies on health effects of waste sites exposure is now recommended by the scientific community.

  • Risk of congenital malformations associated with proximity to hazardous waste sites.

    Abstract

    Concern about environmental pollutants has increased; however, it remains unclear whether chronic exposures to toxic chemicals in the environment occur at doses sufficient to produce adverse health effects in humans. To date, community studies have not adequately addressed this question. In this study, the authors linked two existing data bases of the New York State Department of Health to evaluate the relation between congenital malformations and residential proximity to hazardous waste sites in New York State. A total of 9,313 newborns with congenital malformations and 17,802 healthy controls living in proximity to 590 hazardous waste sites in 1983 and 1984 were evaluated. After the authors controlled for several possible confounding factors, results indicated that maternal proximity to hazardous waste sites may carry a small additional risk of bearing children with congenital malformations (odds ratio (OR) = 1.12, 95% confidence interval (Cl) 1.06-1.18). Higher malformation rates were associated with both a higher exposure risk (no exposure risk: OR = 1.00; low exposure risk: OR = 1.09, 95% Cl 1.04-1.15; high exposure risk: OR = 1.63, 95% Cl 1.34-1.99) and documentation of off-site chemical leaks (not exposed: OR = 1.00; exposed, but no leaks at site: OR = 1.08, 95% Cl 1.02-1.15; exposed, and leaks found at site: OR = 1.17, 95% Cl 1.08-1.27). The increased rates detected may be important in terms of their public health implications. Further research is necessary to strengthen causal inferences regarding the teratogenicity, of waste site exposure.

  • A review of the effects of hazardous waste on reproductive health

    Abstract

    Approximately 1 in 4 Americans lives within 4 miles of a hazardous waste site according to the Environmental Protection Agency. In light of this large proportion and the public's high level of concern that hazardous waste causes health problems, it is important for primary care physicians and other health care providers to know that residential proximity to some kinds of hazardous waste sites is associated with adverse reproductive effects. Findings from both state-based surveillance programs and studies of individual hazardous waste sites have shown increased risk of congenital malformations and reductions in birth weight among infants born to parents living near hazardous waste sites. This article summarizes salient literature on human health effects of hazardous waste and suggests actions for primary care providers to consider.

    appreciate your concern and glad to see at least someone is concerned. It does not matter on which side of the road the proposed SLF and / or waste-to-energy plant (yes, it will be most likely a waste-to-energy plant per most recent discussion with Noida Authority on Monday, 25 Mar 2013) is, it will have impact on bare minimum 5 - 6 KM area.

    For bringing some cheer for all of you, attaching one snapshot; enjoy and think twice about your and your family's future.

    God bless you all!!!

  • Dear All,

    For all those who think that dumping grounds / landfills / waste management plant by municipal authorieties have impact only in few 100 meters then please visit HALLOFSHAME ORG IN i.e. :: Hall of Shame - Impact of dubious Waste Management Rules in India :: for many such incidents across the country and till how many kilometers it will have impact.

    Also, a petition has been created to raise common man's objection against vague municipal solid waste management rules and link is available at the site mentioned above for everyone.

    Request everyone to sign the petition in our own interest.

    Thanks
