Also the stack height will be in accordance with CPCB stipulations. The sewage will be treated and reused; hence no impact on land or water bodies is anticipated. Hence no deposition of pollutants in air, water or land is anticipated. Nevertheless ESIA study will address any likely impacts and mitigation measures.
7.4 From any other sources No No other source to contaminate land and water.
7.5 Is there a risk of long term build up of pollutants in the environment from these sources? No The only emissions will be from DG sets which will be operated in case of power failure.
