Introduction

Development through the 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 the 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. EIA is a formal study process used to predict environmental risk and assist decision-makers in considering the proposed project’s environmental costs and benefits. When the benefits sufficiently exceed the costs, the project can be viewed as environmentally justified. Based on EIA, the regulatory measures can be identified and the roles of concerned agencies defined for achieving more efficient environmental management. The objectives of EIA include prediction of the environmental impact of projects, finding ways and means to reduce adverse impacts, shaping the project to suit the 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. With the above issues in focus, Engineering Staff College of India is organizing a 3-day Continuing Professional Development Programme on “Current Requirements in Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) - Process & Procedures (as per MoEF & CC Guidelines)”.

Introduction

Providing sufficient water of appropriate quantity has been one of the most pressing issues in the Indian subcontinent. Poor water supply is normally a surrogate for huge volumes of water being lost through leaks, not being invoiced to customers and irregular water supply. It also seriously affects the financial viability of water utilities through lost revenues and increased operational costs. The necessity of water has been a principal question before the world. This mandates the establishment of a Smart Water Management (SWM) System i.e. proper water distribution network, system for measuring non-revenue water (NRW), billing systems, water meters, identification of non-registered connections (NRC) etc. Water resource assessment and management are inherently geographical activities requiring the handling of multiple forms of spatial data which creates the need for geographic information systems (GISs) which offers powerful new tools for the collection, storage, management, and display of map related information, providing an understanding of the physical system and helps in judging how management actions might affect that system. Geographic information system (GIS) is a new technology emerging with the development of geographical science, computer technology, remote sensing technology and information science. It is the computer information system that can collect, manage, analyze and visualize space data. According to actual needs, GIS combines location and associated attribute information and shows to the user truly and illustrative. Management and analysis of spatial information is the advantage of GIS. Therefore, GIS is the ideal choice to a government department in smart planning, end to end solutions, sustainable practices, smart management, smart services, pollution monitoring and environmental resources protection. GIS plays major role in the development of distributed hydrologic models and in improving the understanding of the spatial aspects of the distribution and movement of water in landscapes. In addition, GIS also helps in monitoring surface and sub-surface water quality by measuring oxygen, pH, bacterial content, etc. It also measures flow rate of water and turbidity. By applying SWM infrastructure such as sensors, smart meters, monitors, GIS and satellite mapping, and other data sharing tools to water management, real-time solutions can be implemented and broader networks can work together to reduce current water management challenges. The potential application of smart systems in water management is wide and includes solutions for water quality, water quantity, efficient irrigation, leaks, pressure and flow, floods, droughts and much more.

Introduction

Disposal of domestic sewage from cities and towns is the biggest source of pollution of water bodies in India. According to the National Sanitation status report, Govt. of India 2014, the level of treatment available in cities with existing treatment plants varies from 2.5% to 89% of the sewage generated. A recent report of the Central Pollution Control Board envisages that the major cities of India produce 38,534 million liters per day (MLD) of sewage, but the urban sewage treatment capacity is only 11,786 MLD. The report also revealed that out of 152 STPs spread over 15 states in the country with a total treatment capacity of 4716 MLD, the actual treatment capacity utilization is only 3126 MLD (66%). As per Govt. of India and State Missions, it is mandatory to set-up Sewage Treatment Plant in urban and rural for improved sanitation with an efficient working principle. Therefore this, three-day program is planned to have operational knowledge of the Sewage Treatment Process and its evaluation and performance improvement.

Introduction

Detailed project report (DPR) for a Sewage Treatment Plant scheme is a base document for implementing the project. It is a document that 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

ESCI is organizing a 3-day interactive programme in which each of the above topics will be explained with illustrations of case studies.

Introduction

Approx. 43,936 industries in India generate over 70 lakh tonnes of hazardous waste annually. Improper storage of hazardous chemicals- both products and wastes-incompatible inspection of containment materials, using hazardous products when non-hazardous products are available and inadequate training of staff are some of the leading causes of environmental contamination. Contamination can come in many forms- Some examples of contamination are ground and surface water, land, air, radioactive, food, noise, molds, odor, construction, vibration, etc. and invariably, if these contaminants are not properly dealt with, will result in pollution and in certain situations serious health problems. To prevent environmental contamination, proper storage of hazardous chemicals, proper inspection of the containment materials and using non-hazardous products are important. Hazardous waste management is the reduction of the amount of hazardous substances that are produced, reducing the toxicity of hazardous waste and applying techniques/methods to reduce the exposure to waste. The hazards to health of humans are referred to in medical terms as toxicity, and hazardous waste can be of different forms like water contamination, air pollution, food contamination, construction … etc. Disposing of untreated hazardous wastes can affect the health of workers and also the immediate surroundings. In order to dealt with these issues, stakeholders need to upgrade their skills towards Hazardous Waste Management. Hence, ESCI is organizing this 3 days Training Programmes which will give the details on types of hazardous, Non-Hazardous, contaminants and the new frontiers in eliminating or minimizing these wastes. This course provides complete details on the Management & Prevention of Hazardous Waste.
