Sem­i­nars on water man­age­ment for in­dus­try to be held

HT Ludhiana Live - - In&around - LUD­HI­ANA:

The Lud­hi­ana Ef­flu­ent Treat­ment So­ci­ety (LETS) will or­gan­ise sem­i­nars on water man­age­ment for the mem­ber elec­tro­plat­ing in­dus­trial units so that the emis­sion of pol­lu­tants from in­dus­try could be re­duced.

This was de­cided in the first gen­eral body meet­ing of newly elected of­fice bear­ers of LETS with so­ci­ety mem­bers with a pur­pose to chalk out the plan for bet­ter func­tion­ing of so­ci­ety and dis­cuss is­sues been faced by the in­dus­try.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Av­tar Singh said, the meet­ing was con­ducted with a pur­pose to lis­ten to griev­ances of in­dus­try and to draw pan to im­prove func­tion­ing of so­ci­ety.

Singh said, “Re­duc­ing water con­sump­tion in any in­dus­try can be of great im­por­tance for re­duc­ing the level of emer­gence of pol­lu­tants, so water man­age­ment can play an im­por­tant role in this di­rec­tion. With this pur­pose, we will be en­gag­ing a New Delhi based firm for teach­ing the in­dus­try lessons on water man­age­ment.”

Be­sides mon­i­tor­ing of in­dus­try by Pun­jab Pol­lu­tion Con­trol Board (PPCB) the aware­ness among the in­dus­try on the en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns is of great im­por­tance to re­duce pol­lu­tion level. The meet­ing also re­alised that up­grad­ing the tech­nol­ogy was re­quired to re­duce the pol­lu­tion level in in­dus­try.

The mem­bers de­manded that the elec­tro­plat­ing in­dus­try in city work­ing from mix land ar­eas at present should be given land to de­velop a clus­ter so that the ef­flu­ent from th­ese units could be man­aged ef­fi­ciently.

Mem­bers also de­cided to meet PPCB of­fi­cials to avoid un­nec­es­sary in­spec­tions.
