West Bengal Pollution Control Board has organised a workshop cum model exhibition in collaboration with the Department of Environment, Government of West Bengal on 25th January '24.
In the said programme, Dr. Kalyan Rudra, Chairman, WBPCB stated that the programme has been organised to create an awareness among the students of the schools and colleges who have participated. The main aim of WBPCB is to spread awareness among the future generation regarding wetland management and conservation as due to urbanisation and increase in industrial pollution there has been a fall in the percentage of wetland.
He also added that wetland conservation is important as it controls flood. As stated by Dr. Rudra, the industrial waste to wetlands has been controlled as the waste water from various industries are now being filtrated before disposal into wetlands.
