BHOPAL: Green panel has asked civic body and state pollution control board to conduct a joint survey of building projects within two months to ascertain whether they are treating their sewage water and following other environmental norms.

On Tuesday, while hearing a petition filed by Fortune Glory Extension Welfare Association, CREDAI informed the National Green Tribunal (NGT) that norms and laws with regard to development of real estate projects are being followed and requirement under MP Town and Country Planning Act 1973, MP Land Development Regulations 2012 and provisions of environmental laws are being complied with.

CREDAI also informed that their members have started setting up sewage treatment plants (STPs) and using grey water for gardening and watering the plants in greenbelts in developed areas thereby reducing consumption of fresh water by roughly 30%. Grey water was also being used for flushing in the toilets.

Thereafter, NGT central zone bench comprising judicial member Justice Dalip Singh and expert member PS Rao ordered that Bhopal Municipal Corporation and MP Pollution Control Board (MPPCB) should conduct a joint survey to find out whether such STPS are in fact being set up and are in operation and in what manner treated water is being put to use and how many such real estate projects are going in for grey water use.

"Wherever such measures are lacking, the Municipal and MPPCB authorities shall issue notice to the respective societies/managements of projects of real estate for installation and operation of the said plants," the bench ordered. Reply has to be submitted before the Tribunal before May 6 after carrying out the survey within two months.

CREDAI also submitted that there are many small estates and societies who cannot install individual STPs. In such cases, BMC and MPPCB officials shall identify areas where common STPs can be installed for making it viable and beneficial for residents of such projects identified to be clubbed together, NGT ordered.
