The abandoned calcium hypo lagoon of area 5500 square metres has been capped in a scientific manner - this would make sure that no untreated /partially treated effluent and seepage/run-off from the calcium hypo chlorite lagoon/dump sites are discharged into Chhaliya drain. Pumping system for leachate of the lagoon has been installed and leachate of the lagoon is being sent to ETP for treatment.
