Abstract

Around Vadodara City (Gujarat) number of chemical industries dispose of water, air and oil based pollutant everyday. The pollution process in soil due to the industrial effluent discharge on to the land and its effect on the geotechnical properties of soil arc discussed in the present case study. Uncontrolled exploitation of the natural resources have resulted in an unanticipated soil behaviour due to environmental degradation. This resulted in an increased interest in the study of environmental geotechnics which is a means of forecasting soil behaviour to the changing environment.

Effects of Effluents of Industrial Waste on Soil Properties (A Case Study of Nandesari Area, Vadodara)

St. Louis, Missouri

Around Vadodara City (Gujarat) number of chemical industries dispose of water, air and oil based pollutant everyday. The pollution process in soil due to the industrial effluent discharge on to the land and its effect on the geotechnical properties of soil arc discussed in the present case study. Uncontrolled exploitation of the natural resources have resulted in an unanticipated soil behaviour due to environmental degradation. This resulted in an increased interest in the study of environmental geotechnics which is a means of forecasting soil behaviour to the changing environment.
