panoli and ankleshwar
PANOLI AND ANKLESHWAR
  • Asia’s biggest chemical industry.
  • Chemical, Pesticide zone Ankleshwar and Panoli.
  • Highest pollution of Air, Water, and Hazardous Waste.
  • Worst case scenario of Water Pollution now in this decade .
slide4

Hon High Court order for the project of Sub sea disposal of Effluent Treated Water of Amla Khadi.

slide5

The sub sea pipe line project for effluent disposal faces hurdles [BEAIL]. Till this disaster lethargic work is going on.

slide9

The fisheries is totally dependent on

  • estuarine/ coastal fishing in Narmada river in Bharuch District.
slide10

The fisherman catches fishes by hand held nets from the coastal/ estuarine belt. Wooden boats are used for the fishing in Narmada River.

slide11

Due to the change in ecology and Narmada dam the Aliya bet, the delta of Narmada disappeared.

Conclusion: There is 75.76 % fish catch reduction noted in five years in Bharuch District.Source of the data:Assistant Director of Fisheries Bharuch Dist. State Fisheries Department.Govt of Gujarat.

reasons for fish reduction

Reasons For Fish Reduction

The Dam has played a role in the fish reduction the fresh water flow drawing from dam is decreased. Fresh water level decreased so saline water is reaching in far area of river creating salinity problem. In comparison to other dams this effect has no major role in this fish disaster.

Dead zones theory not stand here as this Narmada river have no more pollution reported due to sewage the algae level is sufficient.

slide18
In compare to other district fish data of Gujarat / National data / International data no such huge gap is reported any where ranging 75% reduction in 5 years.
  • Some commercial fishes like Kalbasu, Major carp, Bekti is being reported totally NIL from last 3 years. The condition of environment may become horrible if this situation continues. There is no future for fisheries.
  • If the commercial fishes are disappeared then what we can hope about the estuarine bio-diversity / ecology / aquatic environment and endangered species.
slide19

*The pesticide units of Ankleshwar/Panoli treats effluent water in ETP but there is no facility available with Pollution Control Board to assess the toxic chemicals and related toxicity in the waste water. * There is no or weak facility for bio monitoring.* There is huge difference in day’s analysis and night’s analysis of the Amla khadi water. No one is taking samples in night like Pollution Control Board/ University/Govt agency/ third party monitoring. * The Pollution Control board has now acted strongly after shocking event of fish disaster.

what happened to narmada river
What happened to Narmada River?
  • The fish reduction is due to industrial pollution in the estuarine brackish water area where salinity varies due to tidal fluctuations. The fish breeding takes place in this brackish water area. The estuary of Narmada have no dilution for this industrial effluent. The toxic effluent has stopped the natural breeding of fishes.
  • Bio assay test fails every times. Fish can not survive more than a minute in the Amla-Khadi water.
  • The EIA reports of Bharuch District say for new/expansion projects ‘There is no adverse impact on environment reported and there will be no adverse impact on environment’ a routine sentence.
slide21
The Environmental Impact Assessment report making agencies and Pollution Control Board claims that every thing is normal. The government wants that the nick name ‘Critically Polluted Area’ should be lifted from the Ankleshwar region.
  • The supreme environmental authority NEERI is quoting fish data in EIA report but doesn’t care to quote the reasons of fish fall this is very unfortunate for our country.
  • Then why this fishes are at devastation and government is silent???
  • Where are our pollution control measures and policy makers???
slide22
Where we are standing in way of development???
  • Where is eco friendly and sustainable development???
  • What are the human rights of fisherman whose lively hood is badly affected???
  • Will the polluters pay them ??? Or fisherman should fight for their existence and for their human rights???
  • Will the Authority and Developers think about the so called “their development”, our environment and affected fisherman ???
thank you
Thank You.
  • Humble request………
  • Please Think.
