Presence of heavy metal in soil near the industrial sites in Firozabad
Author(s): Dr. GC Yadav
It is possible that soil near industrial sites in Firozabad may contain heavy metals, as industrial activities often involve the use and release of such materials. Heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, and chromium can be toxic to humans and the environment in high concentrations. Studies have shown that industrial activities in Firozabad, particularly in the glass and bangle-making industries, have resulted in the release of heavy metals into the environment. The use of lead-based dyes and pigments in the production of bangles has also contributed to the presence of lead in the soil.
It is important to conduct regular monitoring of soil near industrial sites in Firozabad to assess the level of heavy metal contamination and its potential impact on human health and the environment. Proper disposal of hazardous waste and implementation of pollution control measures can also help to minimize the release of heavy metals into the environment. This study provides a clear evidence that there is an urgent need for reducing the harmful impacts on environment as well as on human health due to the industrial discharge activities. There is decrease in the pH and organic matter of soil, while increase the solubility of heavy metal concentration, which may have toxic impacts on environment. On the basis of the above study, all the sites have very high amount of Pb, Cd, Cr and Cu. This concludes that the studied sites are not suitable for the people to reside and for the cultivation of plants and crops.
