Water quality and land use land cover analysis of Pawna River: Lifeline of sister city of Pune, India


Patil SS, Gabale S, Padade G, Durugkar T, Jalamkar S, Mawal S

River Pawna is the major river with historical background flowing through the jurisdiction of Pimpri-Chinchwad (PCMC), also known as a sister city of Pune, one of the fastest growing metropolitan cities of India. Rapid urbanization and industrialization is putting huge pressure on the existing limited environmental resources and infrastructure. Discharge of tremendous untreated domestic sewage, industrial waste is further deteriorating the quality of river Pawna. In this study for the first time, we aimed to map the discharge inlets into river Pawna using geographical information system (GIS) using advanced softwares. This has led to the information about the pollution load entering the river Pawna at various points (stations) along its flowpath, the information which is non-existent till date. We believe, this information will lead to the better understanding of pollution sources, their pollution load and remedial methods. This information will also help the local city corporation such as PCMC to plan the preventative and control measures to curb the pollution and levy strict regulatory actions against the culprits. Likewise this first-of-its- kind of GIS based maps created for river Pawna will guide the River Rejuvenation program outlined under Swatchha Bharat Mission by Government of India.
