Draft Environment (Protection) (Amendment) Rules, 2022 relaxes maximum permissible Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) limit for a Common Effluent Treatment Plant


The maximum permissible Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) limit w.r.t. treated effluent from a Common Effluent Treatment Plant shall be 2100 mg/l. However, the limit may be relaxed by the concerned SPCB/PCC, in case where TDS in intake (supplied) water to the member industries is above 1100 mg/l and a maximum contribution up to 1000 mg/l is permitted, provided the maximum value of 3100 mg/l is not exceeded in the treated effluent from CETP.

The above said relaxation is proposed through draft Environment (Protection) (Amendment) Rules, 2022 issued on 10th November, 2022. Any person interested in making any objections or suggestions on the proposals contained in the draft notification may forward the same in writing, for consideration of the Central Government within 60 days to the Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Indira Paryavaran Bhawan, Jor Bagh Road, New Delhi – 110 003, or send it to the email address: mscb.cpcb@nic.in and sonu.singh@gov.in.
