The paper deals with the assessment of municipal solid waste management (MSWM) of Satna district. Present scenario and status of municipal solid waste management at Satna, Maihar, Nagod and Birsinghpur municipalities of District Satna (MP) was studied. The results of this study indicated that nondegradable, biodegradable and recyclable wastes were found in highest, moderate and in lowest quantity respectively in all the season in year 2007-08. Results of the study also reveal that the MSW generation rate was 0.260, 0.290, 0.230 and 0.218 kg/capita/day at Satna, Maihar, Nagod and Birsinghpur respectively in year 2007-08. The higher generation rate was found at Maihar municipality which may be due to the floating population of Maihar due to temple of Goddess Sharda Mata. The municipal solid waste management system of the studied municipalities is not proper and as per Municipal Solid Waste (Management and Handling) Rules 2000. MSW dumping sites are also not designed as per rules. The local municipal bodies are not completely complying the rules and still the municipal solid waste management facilities are inadequate, and it is an ardent requirement to improve the solid waste management system. All the authorities of municipal council are apathetic towards municipal solid waste management. Considering all these factors such as increasing population and industrialization the strategy should be well developed and formulated.

To carryout surface water quality of the area, samples from 4 different ponds were taken during monsoon season, post-monsoon, winter season and pre-monsoon in year 2012-13. The studied water bodies (ponds) are located near about an integrated steel and power plant in new Raipur area, Chhattisgarh. The water quality parameters, like pH, TDS, total hardness, alkalinity, chloride, fluoride, sulphate, nitrate, calcium, magnesium and iron were analyzed in the present study. The pH, TDS, total hardness, alkalinity, chloride, sulphate, nitrate, calcium and magnesium were analysed in the the prescribed norms. Fluoride concentration in sample SW1, SW2 and SW4 found slightly higher than desired limit but under permissible limit as prescribed by Bureau of Indian Standard (2012). Iron was found in range between 0.54 to 1.24 mg/L which is higher than permissible limit in all the samples. The higher concentration of iron may be due to deposition of iron mixed suspended particulate matter from atmosphere to surface, that is emitted from nearest an integrated steel and power plant. Maximum iron concentration found in the sample SW1 (Serikheri pond) which is located in the downwind direction with respect to the plant where dispersion of air pollutants may be greater than other location. ©2015 - Kalpana Corporation.

The physical and chemical characteristics of pond water was investigated during Monsoon Season, Post-monsoon, winter season and Pre-monsoon (2012-13).The studied ponds relocated near about an integrated steel and power plant at Mandir Hasoud, Raipur, India. The eleven water quality parameters like pH, TDS, alkalinity, total hardness, chloride, iron, fluoride, sulphate, nitrate, calcium and magnesium were analyzed in this study. The pH, TDS, Total Hardness, Alkalinity, Chloride, Sulphate, Nitrate, calcium and magnesium were found well within the norms as prescribed by BIS. Fluoride concentration in sample SW1, SW2 and SW4 was found to be slightly higher than desired limit but under permissible limit as prescribed by BIS. Iron concentration was found higher than permissible limit in all the samples. The higher concentration of iron may be due to deposition of iron content mixed suspended particulate matter from atmosphere to surface that is emitted from nearest an integrated steel and power plant. The maximum iron concentration found in the Serikheri pond which is situated in the down wind direction with respect to the plant where dispersion of air pollutants is greater than other location. © 2014 The Academy of Environmental Biology, India.
