World Bank to aid EPTRI study on water pollution

Our Bureau

Hyderabad , Jan. 30

THE World Bank has awarded the city-based Environmental Protection Training and Research Institute (EPTRI) a study on `Regulatory reform for water pollution management.'

The findings of the study would be used for setting up an urban local body-level organ to deal with water pollution, particularly from non-point sources all over the country.

In a presentation to international environmental experts here, Mr S.V. Prasad, Director-General of EPTRI, said society, the reason for pollution, should accept the responsibility of its elimination.

Ms Kseniya Lvovsky, a leading environmental economist, and Ms Jane Nishida, a senior environmental institution specialist of the World Bank, held discussions with the institute with regard to allocating the project.

Mr Prasad said the project would design necessary institutional and regulatory framework to achieve this. "The key is the creation of a model that will find universal acceptance," an EPTRI press release said, quoting Mr Prasad.
