Posted on: 15 October 2016

SPARC to assist Odisha State Pollution Control Board (OSPCB) for development of geo-database, environmental mapping and Web-GIS based application for Critically Polluted Areas (having Comprehensive Environmental Pollution Index value more than 70).

Three industrial clusters in Odisha namely Angul-Talcher, Ib-valley and Jharsuguda have been selected under this project for analysis of various environmental parameters and effective implementation of various pollution abatement plans.

The project involves DGPS survey of target locations (industry/mine locations, monitoring stations, effluent discharge points, surface water locations, action plan areas etc.) and GIS mapping of carriers and receptors. The system shall help in map-based visualization of environmental pollution sources and generation of periodic reports to plan mitigation action.
