Policy soon on river pollution

Our Bureau

New Delhi, Sept. 19

The Minster of Environment and Forests, Mr A. Raja, said on Tuesday at a seminar on `Waste Water Treatment' that the Government would soon come out with a policy to ensure that major rivers and lakes are not contaminated by polluted water including sewage.

"The Government is seeking active public private partnership to ensure clean drinking water in the most cost effective manner. The consultations with the State Governments are on and the Ministry would soon come out with a policy," he said. He further said that the objective was not only to ensure higher resource flow but also to address the issue of technology and partnership between local communities, public agencies, research institutions, investors and multilateral and bilateral partners.
