E-Waste Polluting Delhi's Groundwater, Soil: Study

Improperly-handled electronic waste may be contaminating sections of the city's groundwater and soil, according to a study by researchers at Jamia Millia Islamia. The scientists analysed soil samples from Mandoli's Krishna Vihar—which has several mounds of unprocessed electronic waste—and found, among other pollutants, copper in the region's topsoil to be about 283 mg/kg. Just 5 km from the site, which was chosen as reference site, copper levels were around 8.39 mg/kg. Heavy metal contamination in groundwater samples from the area was also significant.
