NGT: Musi, one of the most contaminated river in Telangana
Hyderabad: A just recently launched record by the National Green Tribunal mentioned that Musi is one of the most contaminated river in Telangana.
The record likewise labelled Nagole as one of the most contaminated place. As per a record on contaminated stretches by the Telangana State Pollution Control Board, high degrees of coliform were uncovered in the river, together with unbalanced degrees of Dissolved Oxygen (DO) and also organic oxygen need (BOD).
The National Green Tribunal kept an eye on the Musi, Godavari, Krishna, Manjeera, Maneru, and also Kinnersani making use of 26 various places and also 8 criteria. These consisted of DO, pH, conductivity, BOD, overall coliform, complimentary ammonia, boron, and also SAR (Sodium Adsorption Ratio). The study was performed in between January to June 2022.
Apart from these, 8 stretches consisting of Hyderabad to Nalgonda (Krishna, Musi), Gowdicherla to Nakkavagu (Manjeera), Gandilachapet to Sevalal Thanda (Nakkavagu), Palvancha (Kinnersani), Warangal to Somanpally (Maneru), Basara to Khammam (Godavari), Thangadi to Wadapally (Krishna).
From the 26 places checked, Nagole tape-recorded the highest degree of contaminants with a BOD of 18 mg per litre, reduced liquified oxygen (DO) degrees of 0.3 mg/l, coliform degrees of 1600 mpn/100 ml, and also conductivity of 1,395 millisiemens/centimeter (mS/cm), suggesting that the water is unsuited for human and also animal usage.
BOD is the quantity of Oxygen called for to draw out waste raw material from the water. It exists in living microorganisms. Conductivity is the capacity of the water to travel through electrical existing. Coliform represents the degree of disease-carrying microorganisms in the water.
On the contrary, the Mancherial-Kothagudem stretch was a direct bed hotspot of contamination in the Godavari because of mining tasks. Similarly, Karimnagar, was likewise an environment hotspot because of mining tasks. The mining belts in Godavari and also Musi were high radiation temperature level areas, which affected environment adjustment by making the area much more vulnerable to cloudbursts in the future.
