Mumbai’s most popular guests are being slow-poisoned


The water in the Thane Creek Flamingo Sanctuary has stunning degrees of poisons, an extremist has affirmed days in the wake of guaranteeing that modern effluents from a harmed pipeline were streaming into the safeguarded water body close to the Vashi span.

Stalin D of NGO Vanashakti said he had sent water tests from the river for testing and the outcomes affirmed his most terrible apprehensions. Almost 1.3 lakh flamingos visited the region this year.

The lobbyist said the pipeline runs from the MIDC (Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation) region. “Regardless of showing unquestionable proof of contamination as recordings and an investigation report, MIDC keeps on rejecting that there is any spillage and this is totally unsatisfactory. The whole natural life of the Thane Creek Flamingo Sanctuary is in danger as a result of this spilling pipeline,” said Stalin.

The dissident said, “The way that spillages are occurring is validated by numerous anglers yet their voices were rarely heard. We will move the National Green Tribunal on the off chance that the spillages are not fixed right away. The release of effluents into the Thane Creek Flamingo Sanctuary should prevent quickly from all elements concerned.”

Refering to the test report, Stalin said the degrees of substance oxygen interest (2,880 mg/lit), pH, biochemical oxygen interest or BOD (900 mg/lit), complete broke down solids (27366 mg/lit) and variety (36 CU) are more than allowable cutoff points.

“The test obviously demonstrates that the water in the stream has become harmful and this will adversely affect the sea-going life inside the Thane river. I have seen dead fishes in the stream and numerous anglers have affirmed the rehashed occurrences of fish biting the dust,” added Stalin.

What anglers say


Nandkumar Pawar, angler and head of NGO Shree Ekvira Aai Pratishthan, Mumbai, said, “Fishing has diminished definitely due to the arrival of untreated harmful effluents into the Thane Creek Flamingo Sanctuary. Ordinarily we additionally see that there are dead fishes float on the water of Thane spring and the fundamental justification behind the equivalent is the contamination that is occurring inside the brook.”

Pawar added, “On January 25, we had likewise gathered water tests from the river behind Kanjurmarg unloading ground and Bhandup Pumping Station and we found that the contamination level was multiple times higher than reasonable. Body (biochemical oxygen interest) level should be 30 mg/L to be at a protected standard however in the examples it was viewed as at 78 mg/L… Serious, logical examination is expected on need.”

Preservationist talk

NatConnect Foundation chief B N Kumar said, “This is appalling for the existence that relies upon the stream. The expanding inflight of flamingos shows that they are making the waters spotless and biodegradable as the pink birds eat the green growth and different toxins. However, this human intercession is a profoundly disturbing turn of events. It isn’t enough for the public authority to chip away at getting the Ramsar Wetland tag for the safe-haven yet they need to guarantee that the waters are perfect and the verdure are secured. It’s the ideal opportunity for the public authority to walk the discussion.”

What the test found

In the event that the degree of biochemical oxygen request is 30 mg/lit, it’s viewed as protected. For this situation, I was 900 mg/lit
TDS or complete disintegrated solids ranges between 2000-5000mg/L for emanating release focuses yet here it is more than 24,000 which is extremely risky
