Hello Sir/Madam, I wanted to know about ground water recharge using waste water. Is it alright to do it? I'm running a commercial kitchen on my terrace and all its washing water( no solid objects ) goes into the sewer. Is it alright to have a recharge pit near the borewell and redirect the washed water into it for ground water recharge. My bore is 80 feet deep . Please give me some dimensions for the pit and what all goes into the pit. Can I have the pit next to my bore? Thanks & Regards, Karthikeyan Karuppiah.

Though informal e-waste handling, segregation and import are prohibited by the law, e-waste business is thriving in the country.

Take a walk through the maze of lanes at Seelampur in north-east Delhi, you could see small children rummaging through electronic waste that has made its way here from all over north India. They segregate end-of-life electrical and electronic products, prise them apart, put them through acid wash and also burn circuit boards in the hope of extracting precious metals. From old electronics to spent batteries, they handle all items that head to the waste pile with bare hands.

The water of East Kali is heavily polluted. It would hopefully change with the NGT taking notice of it.

Rampura, situated in Bulandshahr district in western Uttar Pradesh, is one of the 1,200 villages on the banks of the 300-km long East Kali, a tributary of the Ganges. The river is named after goddess Kali who, according to the Hindu mythology, is fierce and fights evil by ingesting it.

A hard-hitting documentary film ‘Kakkoos’ looks at the politics behind the banned practice of manual scavenging and how the civil society connives to keep it alive.

Kakkoos, a compelling documentary film on manual scavenging in Tamil Nadu is all about showing the practice as it is without any filter. The pictures are shocking and watching them is easier said than done -- toilets teeming with shit, sanitary napkins lying scattered, people collecting faeces with their uncovered hands, cleaning hazardous medical waste, handling maggot-ridden corpses and much more.

I live in a gated community location where each villa has about two septic tanks in the garden area and two in the patio. As a result, there is a smell of urine that lingers around in these areas constantly. What can be done to prevent this?

Sir, we live in an apartment where the recycled water and the fresh water is stored side by side. There is a wall that divides these 2 tanks. Is it safe to continue this method of storage? Is there any regulation or case law to restrict this practice?
