Impact of Effluent and Ash on Essential Elements in the Soil around the NTPC SIPAT

Dr. Rita Bajpai [2]

Abstract: Industrial pollution is the biggest menace to our environment. It means adding impurity to environment. The environment consists of earth, water, air, plants and animals. During the last decade, a large area of irrigated lands in around the Bilaspur has been changed from extensive cropping to industrialization. Due to the effect of industrial effluent the soil became incapable to supply high yield crops1. The required amount of essential elements sometimes decreases or increases, therefore the quality of soil affected by the mixing of industrial effluent. The soil contains essential elements as macronutrients and micro nutrients. From the plant /soil nutrient index the required amount of nutrients varied therefore, the deficiency or excess of N, P, K, Mn, Zn, Cu and Fe will change the fertility of soil. So this paper includes the impact of effluent and ash on Essential elements in the soil around the NTPC Sipat. The soil samples collected from the different five locations (up to 15 km) around the power plant. The results were found for five soil samples about macro & micronutrients (in %and in ppm) as N (4.9882 10.0325), P (6.2420 16.2434), K (21.2204 60.3006) Mn (0.3442 -0.5646), Zn (0.1996 -0.6884), Cu (0.1462 - 8024) and Fe (0.0336 0.7632) respectively. The lower values of abovementioned essential elements affected the fertility of soil and soil becomes low fertile soil, it is due to mixing of wastes and ash dispose off from power plant in the soil.
