MEANING
Water pollution
occurs when harmful
substances often chemicals
or microorganisms
contaminate a stream, river,
lake, ocean, aquifer, or
other body of water,
degrading water quality
and rendering it toxic to
humans or the environment
DEFINITION
Sec.2(e) "pollution" means such
contamination of water or such alteration
of the physical, chemical or biological
properties of water or such discharge of
any sewage or trade effluent or of any
other liquid, gaseous or solid substance into
water as may,or is likely to, create a
nuisance or to domestic, commercial,
industrial, agriculture or other legitimate
uses, or to the life and health of animals or
plants or of aguatic organisms.
POWERS AND FUNCTIONS
Policy Formulation:
The CPCB plays a crucial
role in formulating
comprehensive policies and
strategies aimed at preventing
and controlling water pollution.
These policies provide a
framework for addressing
various sources of pollution and
promoting sustainable water
management practices.
Regulatory Authority:
As a regulatory authority,
the CPCB has the power to enforce laws
and regulations related to water pollution.
It oversees compliance with these
regulations and takes appropriate actions
against individuals, industries, or
organizations found to be violating
environmental laws.
Monitoring and Assessment:
The CPCB regularly monitors the quality of
water in rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and other water bodies
across the country. This monitoring involves collecting
water samples, analyzing them for pollutants, and
assessing the overall health of aquatic eecosystems.
Standard Setting:
Based on scientific
research and international best practices,
the CPCB establishes standards for various
parameters of water quality, such as
permissible levels of pollutants and
contaminants. These standards serve as
benchmarks for assessing and managing
water pollution.
Research and Development:
To address emerging
challenges and develop
innovative solutions for water
pollution, the CPCB conducts or
sponsors research and
development activities. This
may include studying the
effectiveness of pollution
control technologies, evaluating
the impacts of pollution on
human health and the
environment, and exploring
sustainable water management
practices.
Capacity Building:
Recognizing the
importance of building capacity
among stakeholders, the CPCB
organizes training programs,
workshops, and seminars to
enhance awareness and
understanding of water pollution
issues. These capacity building
initiatives target government
officials, industry professionals,
researchers, community groups,
and the general public.
