Two dyeing units sealed

Officials of the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB) disconnected power supply and sealed two dyeing units in the Corporation limits where effluent treatment plants were not operational.

A flying squad recently inspected the units at Periyasemoor area and found effluents being discharged into drainage channels and the treatment plants lying idle. A report was submitted to the Collector and Chairman of the District Monitoring Committee C. Kathiravan, who ordered disconnection of power supply to the units. Later, the units were sealed.

Mr. Kathiravan warned the dyeing and bleaching units not to discharge effluents into water bodies.
