Odisha Power Plant Proposal Scrapped To WIO's Delight  
 
Head of WIO says NTPC should support Solar Energy and not fossil fuels.

Monday, April 08, 2013 A coal-based power plant will no longer be built in Gajmara, Dhenkanal district, much to the delight of the environmental watchdog of the state, Water Initiatives India. The National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has decided to move the proposed site of its 1600 MW coal-based thermal power plant from Gajmara in Dhenkanal district to another state. The news is welcomed by Water Initiatives India (WIO) who believes the new power plant would have greatly damaged the ecology of the state, specifically when the plants draw water from the already diminishing River Mahanadi. The river, which is at dangerously low levels, is of vital importance to the state, providing drinking water, irrigation and water for industry.

According to data accessed by WIO, currently about 57 industries have been allocated 1295.167 cusec of water from Mahanadi with the Water Allocation Committee (WAC) of the water resources department considering allocating a further 1858. Altogether, Mahanadi accounts for around 62 per cent of the state's total industrial water allocation.

Ranjan Panda, head of WIO, has expressed his beliefs that the Government of Odisha should scrap all thermal power plants in the area and "all other such water guzzling industries such as POSCO, JR Power and the likes, which are going to use water from the severely stressed Mahanadi".

"If NTPC wants to help Odisha in power generation, it should support the state in Solar Energy and not in fossil fuel based energy," urged Panda.
