INTRODUCTION:

Bio medical Waste Management is a crucial need in the country today. There is an increasing concern about harmful effects of biomedical waste generated by health care facilities. Biomedical waste is infectious in nature. Inadequate management of biomedical waste can be associated with risks to healthcare workers, patients, communities and their environment as hospitals are located at prime areas of towns and cities. All these years, biomedical waste was being disposed along with municipal waste, unaware of its ill effects on environment. Due to rising legal and social concern, Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) have framed separate rules for safe disposal of Municipal solid waste and Bio-medical waste (BMW). Implementation of biomedical waste management rules has posed a new challenge to the hospital management. Many health care centres have not yet established standard practices for inventory and segregation of waste. There is a massive problem of bio-medical waste disposal as several hospitals collect the medical waste and dump them in open grounds rather than treating and disposing them in safe manner. To ensure safe and proper disposal of biomedical waste, MoEF has notified Bio medical Waste (Management & Handling) Rules, 2016 under the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986 to replace the earlier BMW (M&H) rules 1998 and the amendments thereof. These rules shall apply to all persons who generate, collect, receive, store, transport, treat, dispose or handle biomedical waste in any form. The new rules stipulate that irrespective of the quantum of biomedical waste generation, every occupier of an institution which includes a hospital, nursing home, clinic, dispensary, veterinary institution, animal house, pathological laboratory, blood bank shall apply for grant of authorization to the prescribed authority. The rules make hospital and owner of the medical waste treatment facility liable for all damages caused due to improper handling of waste.

INTRODUCTION:

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 socioeconomic 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 decisionmakers. 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”.

Introduction :

Detailed project report (DPR) for a Sewage Treatment Plant scheme is a base document for implementing the project. It is a document which should fit into the city sanitation plan. Based on this, the detailed steps required can be taken for:

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

j) Levies as taxes and charges

k) Viability gap funding

Introduction : Environmental impact assessment is a decision-making planning tool used to systematically identify, predict, evaluate, and mitigate potential impacts of a current or proposed project on the environment and on society. The main purpose of environmental impact assessment is to provide information to planners and decision-makers so that they can determine the best solution that minimizes biophysical, social and other significant effects of the project prior to major decisions being taken and commitments made. Water pollution analysis, monitoring and modeling, both for surface as well as below ground is an important component in EIA studies. As everybody is aware, the various schemes of government insist on water conservation, pollution prevention, water reuse. To strengthen further the knowledge and skills level of participants and the organization, ESCI is planning to conduct this 3 day programme on Water Pollution Monitoring and Modeling using Software Application.
