Untreated discharge in Gedilam river

Untreated effluent discharge by EID Parry's sugar mill at Nellikupam rarely makes news. The company discharges their waste in Gedilam which kills fishes in the river. The violation continues for decades. It is said that the company discharges huge volume especially when there is a heavy rain.

The above photos taken near Kammianpet on 02-Feb-2008 shows river water polluted by the discharge.
