Development through use of technologies is required to improve the standard of living. In view of the fact that Development projects are interfering with the environment, it is essential, before starting a major project, to assess the present environment scenario and, at the same time, it is necessary to assess impact of the same project on the environment during its operation. Environmental concerns have to be addressed rationally before any project is grounded. The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is an effort to anticipate, measure and weigh the socio-economic and biophysical changes that may result from a proposed project.
The objectives of EIA include assessment of existing environmental quality status, prediction of environmental impact of projects, finding ways and means to reduce adverse impacts, shaping the project to suit local environment and presenting the predictions and options to the decision-makers. MoEF, Govt. of India, has made it mandatory to conduct EIA for all developmental projects.
EIA reports prepared based on detailed environmental assessment studies by different consultants and project proponent serve as instruments by which we identify and assess the potential environmental, social and health impacts of a proposed project, evaluate alternatives, and design appropriate environmental and social management plans during the life-cycle of the project Today EIA reports are prepared by a variety of consultants and project proponents have no clear understanding and adequate knowledge to judge the soundness of the report and implications of the findings and recommendations made in it. Many times project proponents are also not aware whether proper methodologies, tools and techniques are used in the studies and in order to make decision makers aware of all these aspects, Engineering Staff College of India is organizing a 3-day Continuing Professional Development Program on “Conducting EIA Study and Preparation of EIA reports – Case Study & Group Discussion”.

a) Sewage collection,

b) Sewage conveyance,

c) Sewage pumping

d) Sewage treatment

e) Sewage reuse where possible

f) Sludge management

g) Methods of procurement

h) Human resources development and

i) Tariff for sustainable O&M
