A study has been taken to evaluate the impact of industrial waste generated from different industries existing in Jagatpur Industrial Estate on river Mahanadi. Samples were collected from final discharge point to river Mahanadi of different industries as well as upstream and downstream of river Mahanadi to Jagatpur Industrial Estate. Samples were collected in three seasons. The results obtained at U/S and D/S points on river Mahanadi in different seasons (winter, summer and rainy) has been compared graphically. From the seasonal variation it was observed that almost all parameters are in increasing trend. In the rainy season, yearly average value at the D/S point is quite high as compared to yearly value at U/S point. The high values in rainy season is due to washing of waste dumping near Mahanadi bed. Quality Ratings for different parameters has been calculated from that water quality index was found out and compared. From the results it is concluded that, due to industrial waste discharge, water quality of river Mahanadi is deteriorated at the D/S point on river Mahanadi and the results are not meeting the prescribed standard for drinking water under Class A.

In recent years municipal solid waste (MSW) management has been one of the most environmental concerns for all urban areas of India. Most of the urban centers have neither adequate land nor any facility for MSW disposal. In view of scarcity of lands for making landfill sites, solid wastes can be used for energy recovery resulting in volume reduction, thus requires less area for its disposal. Guwahati is one such city of North-East India, having the potential to recover the energy from solid wastes and at the same time the waste management system of the city can be improved. This paper attempts to characterize the urban solid waste of the city as well as its energy potential for various uses. Results showed that the average generation rate of MSW was 0.7 kg/capita/day and the city has the potential to generate the power of 30 MW from the solid waste. © 2012 Journal of Urban and Environmental Engineering (JUEE).

Ground water acts as a reservoir and source of water for wells, springs, bore wells and handpumps. The increase in human population and fast development led to the scarcity of drinking water. The inadequate and irregular supply of water through piped water system has forced the population to use the ground water especially bore wells. As the bore well is used for drinking purpose by most of the population, it is very essential to test the quality of water. The study was carried out by collection of ground water samples from about 6 bore wells located in Jagatpur Industrial Estate area. The samples were collected quarterly In the month of January 09, May 09 and September 09 to determine the different parameters, such as pH, total dissolved solids, BOD, COD, Cl -, T. Fe, turbidity, SO -2, total hardness. Seasonal variations of different parameters have been compared with the standard. From the results mean, standard deviation and correlation, coefficient among parameters has been studied. © 2011 - Kalpana Corporation.

Due to rapid urbanization of Bhubaneswar city, the population load is increasing sharply day by day. As a result ,the requirement of water for human activities is increasing. In return a huge amount of wastewater is generated and discharged into river Kuakhal and make it polluted. Thus people are forced to use ground water which is known to be safe for drinking. At present 40% people of Bhubaneswar depend on ground water. But unfortunately the ground water Is also getting polluted day by day. So it is high time to assess the ground water quality in Bhubaneswar. Nine different locations were chosen depending on population load and to cover all parts of Bhubaneswar .The samples were collected quarterly in the month of January-09, May-09 and September-09 to determine different physical, chemical and biological parameters. The seasonal variations of different parameters have been compared with the standard. From the results mean, standard deviation; correlation coefficient among different parameters has been studied. It is found that total hardness is highly correlated with chloride, conductivity and total dissolved solids. Similarly chloride is highly correlated with conductivity and total dissolved solids. Conductivity and total dissolved solids are highly correlated. The results are compared with standard values. © 2011 - Kalpana Corporation.

In this paper we assess the overall quality of pond waters used for irrigation and bathing purpose in rural area around Angul - Talcher Industrial Zone, Orissa on the basis of Water Quality Index (WQI). The quality ratings of eleven water quality parameters were estimated in the period from July 2001 to June 2003 on the basis of which water quality indices (WQI) for all the sampling stations were determined. Three sampling stations were found severely polluted (WQI>100) and two excessively polluted (80
