The state government is planning to build a scientifically designed dumping ground. The decision comes as a relief from residents living in areas where dumping ground haunts their health but the big question is – when will the state implement the plan. This decision will come as a relief to the city that generates 10,000 metric tonnes of debris every month that cannot be disposed at the municipal dump because they do not accept construction material. A scientifically designed dumping ground will also include a ground to dump debris. Several Mumbai projects, including replacing the 109-km of old pipelines which was to be completed in 2008-09, were stuck indefinitely because there was no place to dump the excavated debris. When the issue was raised in the legislative council, pointing out debris being dumped in the MIDC area of Navi Mumbai, Opposition MLCs asked the government if people who illegally dump debris are fined? However the state replied that it’s the state that is dumping much of the debris in the Navi Mumbai MIDC area. While the state has fines for others illegally dumping debris, a look around in Navi Mumbai exposes that the steps against illegal debris dumping have been a major failure.
