  2. 2. ISSUES OF CITIZENS OF PONDICHERRY  Water use and Management Issues  Population growth  Urbanization  Immigration  Road and vehicle density  Urban slums  Waste management  Industralization
  3. 3. URBANIZATION  Lack of adequate sewage canals, open sewages in residential localities, dumping garbage and waste and letting out the untreated effluents in the sewage have resulted in blockage in both rain and dry seasons.
  4. 4. POPULATION GROWTH  The Population Growth in Urban and Rural areas of Pondicherry UT has resulted in, 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8) Housing problems Waste generation High cost of living Heavy traffic Lack of adequate public transport Parking space Heavy consumption of fossil fuel Rural and urban slums
  5. 5. INDUSTRIALIZATION  Pondicherry UT has no effluent treatment plant facility for treating the hazardous waste generated by the industries.  No exclusive facility for treating Bio medical waste also.  The hazardous and bio medical wastes are dumped with the solid waste and the effluents are let out in the sewage canals directly.
  6. 6. ROAD AND VEHICLE DENSITY  No concrete and consolidated data on the statistics of vehicles registered, the vehicles pollution control and inspection  Cyclists are finding it very difficult to travel since there is no separate lane earmarked in the roads.  Pavements are encroached and the people on walk find it very difficult to walk safely  Signals have no timing earmarked for the pedestrians to use the Zebra Crossing
  7. 7. IMMIGRATION  Rapid industrialization, large number of laborers migrate from rural to urban areas in search of job opportunities.  Resulted in the development of many slums with no proper sanitary and waste disposal arrangements. Owing to unplanned town expansion.
  8. 8. URBAN SLUMS  With increasing housing demands, many new colonies slums have emerged without proper planning  Infrastructure is inadequate and basic needs such as sewerage facilities are not up to bar.
  9. 9. WASTE MANAGEMENT  Untreated/ poorly segregated biomedical wastes are dumped along with Municipal solid wastes, aggravating the health risks for waste handlers and public at large  Large quantity of plastic waste thrown indiscriminately by everyone from street vendors to supermarkets and public which have resulted in clogging of all the road side, major and minor drainage canals contributing to the breeding of vectors
  10. 10. WATER MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS  Ground Water Depletion :The excessive extraction for all uses has caused a drop in the water table at a number of locations such as Katterikuppam, Krishnapuram, Sorapet and Ariyur  Industrial Pollution : Surface water and ground water have been affected by industrial pollution.
