Impact of Urbanization on River and Its Surrounding Structures: Case of Nag River Nagpur
Parikshit P. Mudholkar
Abstract: With quick urban sprawl, a lot of developed grounds have been replaced with building lands around the stream. Urbanization is influencing the physical process of river growth thus change stream structure and further influence the elements of stream framework. As a result the quality of water and soil is continuously deteriorating. This paper investigates the procedures and qualities of urbanization in Nagpur, concentrating on to the harm to river ecosystem and its reverse impact on surrounding structures. The paper looks at the ebb and flow situation of Nag stream, essentially moving through an urban setting of Nagpur city. Population variety demonstrates a continuous increment of enlisted population and a fast increment of skimming population that for the most part originates from neighboring regions in recent years. The quality of soil and extent of soil pollution and soil degradation and its effect can be seen on surrounding structures of the stream. The examination of pointers has been done and report was shaped in like manner. It was found that the effect of urbanization on the waterway framework was significant. Urbanization impacts on river system such as direct mixture of industrial waste water, human waste, garbage, riverbank concreting and low diversity of river style were widely observed. To check the impacts on surrounding structures samples of river water, soil by core test were collected along the stretch of river stream, air quality has been monitored by air pollution monitoring and testing equipment and tested in laboratory. Every pointer had particular sensibility to urbanization so they could be utilized to depict reverse attributes to surrounding structure.
