GUWAHATI, Dec 16 � Taking serious note of the growing degradation of the Elenga Beel � a major water-body of the area � caused by Nagaon Paper Mill of Hindustan Paper Corporation (HPC) at Jagiroad, and of the fact that the HPC authorities failed to comply with earlier directives concerning maintenance of environmental norms, the Pollution Control Board Assam (PCBA) has issued pre-closure notice to HPC for closing the polluting unit of the paper mill.

Discharge of lime by the paper mill has been causing severe pollution to the nearby Elenga Beel and other fisheries besides cropland. The PCBA had earlier asked the HPC to submit a time-bound action plan for desiltation of the Elenga Beel and assessment of the damage caused to the adjoining village area including paddy fields due to lime deposition.
