Call To Monitor Air And Water Quality In Sitapura  
Source:   The Hindu City   : NewDelhi Published On   04-11-2009  


The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has recommended an environmental impact assessment (EIA) of the area affected by the raging fire in the Indian Oil depot at Sitapura on the outskirts of Jaipur.

It has also suggested regular monitoring of air, water and soil in Jaipur, Haryana and Delhi along with the State Pollution Control Boards.

The CPCB is monitoring the impact of the fire on Delhi and the data obtained so far does not indicate any adverse effect on air quality here.

An assessment of the ambient air quality was being carried out by the CPCB at Siri Fort, Delhi College of Engineering and ITO-Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg.

The Rajasthan State Pollution Control Board is monitoring the ambient air quality at five locations: Pratap Nagar police station, Delawas, Mathurawala Gaon, Chowkidhani and the Shivadaspura police station. The data received from these locations between October 30 and November 2 showed that the suspended particulate matter was above the permissible limit, while sulphur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen were within the permissible levels.

However, in the absence of regular monitoring in the rural areas of Jaipur city, the incremental values could not be calculated. Haryana had been asked to monitor the quality of air. The zonal office of CPCB in Bhopal is constantly in touch with the head office here.
