The Noida Authority imposed a fine of Rs 21 lakh on Sandeep Paper Mill for flouting sewage treatment plant (STP) solid norms and non-compliance with waste management (SWM) rules.
Sandeep Paper mill situated in sector 6, has been fined for discharging untreated effluent in storm water drainage, as well as emitting emissions without effective scrubbing of gases released from the boiler.
Mr.Omendra Srivastava, the chief advisor to Noida Authority’s Swachh Bharat Mission initiatives, said, “Our inspection found a disaster was waiting to happen at the mill. The factory was packed till roof with raw materials with the suffocating environment within.”
“While its STP was partly functioning, its paper grinding crushing plant of 70 metric tonne capacity was overstressed and performing at 120 metric tonne capacity. Its effluent treatment plant was found to be discharging black untreated paper slurry directly into drains, leading to groundwater contamination,” he said.
