NOIDA: The National Green Tribunal has directed the Uttar Pradesh government to clarify as to why the width of Hindon River has been reduced to just about 50 metres at the place where a pontoon bridge has been opened temporarily. The tribunal passed this direction while hearing a petition alleging the river has changed its course due to construction of a bridge over it near Raj Nagar in Ghaziabad.

Environmental activists in Ghaziabad had alleged that debris was unabatedly dumped into the Hindon for construction of approach roads for the bridge despite a stay imposed by the tribunal in April 2012.

The National Green Tribunal has ordered the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) and Irrigation department of Uttar Pradesh to clear the debris and muck lying in the riverbed of Hindon for the con

Dumping of debris and waste materials on the Hindon river bed has been banned by National Green Tribunal as it results in hindrance to the natural flow of water near the site of a new bridge over t

The present study has been carried out to assess groundwater quality in parts of Hindon–Yamuna interfluve region of western Uttar Pradesh. Fifty-five groundwater samples were collected from hand pumps in post-monsoon 2005 and pre-monsoon 2006 period, respectively, covering an area of about 1,345 km2. Physical and chemical parameters of groundwater such as electrical conductivity, pH, total dissolved solid, Na, K, Ca, Mg, HCO3, Cl, and SO4 were determined.

The aim of this paper is to develop a methodology for estimating flood risk, considering Noida as a case study. This paper examines the impact of different methods for estimating impervious surface cover on the prediction of peak discharges as determined by a fully distributed rainfall-runoff model (WetSpa). The study of River Yamuna and Hindon basin area shows detailed information on the spatial distribution of impervious surfaces, as obtained/calibrated from remotely sensed data.

The amount and intensity of runoff at catchment scale are largely determined by the presence of impervious land cover types, which are predominant in an urbanized area.

After exactly a year and over Rs 1 crore, the Municipal Corporation of Ghaziabad (MCG) claims to have brought down the pollution levels of the Hindon river.
