Roundtable Discussion on Urban Lake and Wetland Protection and Restoration, and Reuse of Waste Water 29 January, 2013

For the last few decades our urban water bodies are being ignored and killed remorselessly. These crucial kidneys in our urban environment are encroached, polluted, and used as dumping grounds. Planners only see lucrative land. To address these issues the Centre for Science and Environment organized a roundtable discussion on urban lakes/wetland protection and restoration  on  January 29, 2013 at the India Habitat Centre.

CSE recommends BOD as suitable parameter for water quality, wants equipment approval simplified

Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) is a satisfactory parameter to measure water quality. However, the process of measurement should be improved and speeded up. Two ways of doing this are using a bio-sensor based system or a spectrophotometer, that give results within minutes and are nearly as accurate as laboratory-based monitoring. That said, conventional laboratory testing must also be made more robust with clear protocols for sampling, transport and testing.
