Ecological Revitalization of Contaminated Site: Solid Waste Dumping Ground

Aastha Sethi

In India, vast areas of land remain unused due to high contamination and these land parcels continually degrade natural resources around them. 37 % of total land area of India comes under contaminated land and hence revitalizing such areas is necessary. Solid waste dumping grounds are a major source of soil and water contamination. Untreated waste creates unhygienic conditions and pollutes the environment in innumerable ways. Although the construction of a landfill site would minimize the problem, there is a need to improve the conditions of the site already contaminated and for this, the concept of ecological revitalization comes handy. The paper discusses the impact of Deonar solid waste dumping ground, Mumbai, on ecosystem of the area and suggests measures to improve the situation.
