The 19th CSE Media Fellowships 2014: Industrial hotspots, environmental pollution and thereafter

In 2010, the Indian government had declared 43 industrial clusters across the country as ‘critically polluted’. This list was based on a Comprehensive Environmental Pollution Index (CEPI) created by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB). In 2013, the Union ministry of environment and forests (MoEF) imposed a moratorium banning new industries in eight industrial clusters, after a survey showed very high pollution levels in these areas.

Training on Septage Management: Towards City Wide Sanitation

Date: November 24-26, 2014

‘Septage’ is both solid and liquid waste that accumulates in onsite sanitation systems (OSS) e.g. septic tanks. This has three main components – scum, effluent and sludge. It has an offensive odour, appearance and contains significant levels of grease, grit, hair, debris and pathogenic micro organisms. The construction and management of OSS are left largely to ineffective local practices and there is lack of holistic septage management practices.
