Leachate treatment plant now functional at SWM plant
The Dehradun municipal commissioner Vinay Shankar Pandey informed that the leachate treatment plant has been set up and is functional at the solid waste management and recycling plant in Sheeshambada.
According to Pandey, though the Municipal Corporation of Dehradun (MCD) had assured that the treatment plant to treat the leachate generated at the solid waste management and recycling plant would start by January 31, it has been made functional before the said date. About the storage of the water treated through the leachate plant, he said that water can be used for irrigation in fields but for now, it is being used to water the plants in the area.
It is pertinent to mention here that the locals of Sheeshambada have been protesting against the waste management plant alleging that improper treatment of garbage is leading to many health issues among the residents. They have been demanding either the closure or shifting of the plant but the mayor Sunil Uniyal ‘Gama’ has already made it clear that the plant will neither be shifted nor shut down. In the wake of their protest, Section 144 has also been implemented within 200 metres of the plant.
