Industries want to snap ties with GEPIL after GPCB expose
After the Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB) exposed two illegal pipelines from an Integrated Common Hazardous Waste Management Facility(ICHWMF), the Industries body at Sachin industrial estate are contemplating snapping ties with the unit.

Last week GPCB had unearthed two illegal pipelines originating an ICHWMF, operated by Gujarat Enviro Protective and Infrastructure Ltd (GEPIL) dumping untreated industrial waste into rivulet.

Following this revelation, many industries have stopped sending chemical waste in to GEPIL for disposal and diverting it to other effluent treatment plant at Bhrauch. "We are with local villagers in this issue. If GEPIL is disposing waste water without proper treatment, then it is completely unacceptable.

We will take any further decision after GPCB’s report," president of processing association of Sachin industrial estate, Girish Shetty, said. He said that they have given assurance to local villagers of Unn taluka where the GEPIL is located that they would support them till the very end. "GEPIL's unlawful act has been exposed and now won’t allow this company to operate further.

GEPIL is a threat to ecology and atmosphere in surrounding villages and it will be our sole goal to close this company at earliest," Secretary of Parivartan Trust, fighting for villagers' cause, Prakash Contractor, said. According to Contractor more than 200 buffaloes have died so far after to drinking polluted water from the polluted rivulet. The GEPIL located in Unn taluka treats industrial solid and liquid waste.

Following repeated complaints from local villagers, GPCB raided company premises and found two illegal connections, through which the company allegedly directly disposed untreated waste water into nearby rivulet.
