Pollution Abatement Strategies in a Stretch of River Kahn at Indore, India

Pollution Abatement Strategies in a Stretch of River Kahn at Indore, India River pollution is one of the major concerns for sustaining a healthy and liveable environment as rivers are prime source of water for the majority of livelihoods. Self-purification of river is mistaken as treatment of wastewater and results into heavy discharge of waste water either into the tributaries or directly into the river by human beings. Continuous deterioration of river water by means of sewage changes the perception of river into open sewer drain popularly known as nallahs. The present study deals with the strategies required for a stretch of 4 km of one such nallah i.e. river Kahn to prevent the pollution and make the water flowing in the river of acceptable quality. The study indicates the current status of river Kahn which receives domestic waste water directly through various outfalls of residential colonies by measurement of water quality parameters. Feasibility for an in situ treatment based on constructed wetland has been analysed and proposed as one of the remedial measure that can be considered as initial step towards restoring river Kahn. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of The Institution of Engineers (India): Series A Springer Journals

Abstract

River pollution is one of the major concerns for sustaining a healthy and liveable environment as rivers are prime source of water for the majority of livelihoods. Self-purification of river is mistaken as treatment of wastewater and results into heavy discharge of waste water either into the tributaries or directly into the river by human beings. Continuous deterioration of river water by means of sewage changes the perception of river into open sewer drain popularly known as nallahs. The present study deals with the strategies required for a stretch of 4 km of one such nallah i.e. river Kahn to prevent the pollution and make the water flowing in the river of acceptable quality. The study indicates the current status of river Kahn which receives domestic waste water directly through various outfalls of residential colonies by measurement of water quality parameters. Feasibility for an in situ treatment based on constructed wetland has been analysed and proposed as one of the remedial measure that can be considered as initial step towards restoring river Kahn.
