The Government of Madhya Pradesh proposes to utilise the land occupied by the erstwhile solar evaporation ponds (SEP) at Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL), Bhopal to establish an industrial estate as a part of the rehabilitation programme for gas victims. UCIL retained National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI), Nagpur in May 1992 to prepare a detailed Environmental Management Plan (EMP) for disposal of pond contents' before the SEP area is utilised.
This report presents the baseline data on ground water and land / components of environment, as a 1 so on the treatment II' alternatives for pond contents. An Environmental Management Plan has been. delineated for containment of pond contents ina secure landfill.
The cooperation and assistance rendered by the staff of UCIL in the course of our study programme' is gratefully acknowledged.
