Tribal residents opposed to displacement for Lambapur-Peddagattu uranium mine project, fear contamination of water The Uranium Corporation of India Ltd UCIL proposes to set up an open pit and three underground mines in Nalgonda district.
It plans a central plant about 48 km from the mine site based on acid leaching. The UCIL decision comes in the wake of a large uranium resource which has been established at Lambapur-Peddagattu region of the district. The corporation is said to be preparing to take up uranium mining in Chandampet and P A Palli mandals.
This is causing anxiety among the girijans [tribal] residents of the two mandals. However, residents like Senavath Shankar of Peddagattu say that they are prepared to shift only if the administration protects their interests in all respects.
Ramavath Sakru of Limbapur stated that the people were not ready to be displaced by the uranium project, having already been affected by the Nagarjunasagar dam. Similarly, human rights and people's organisations have threatened to join residents in opposing uranium exploration.
In the context of the opposition, it remains to be seen whether the corporation would go ahead with the exploratory work.
This would result in causing health problems to the people. The Hans India Mar. The latest proposal of the department of atomic energy DAE to take up exploration of a portion of Amrabad tiger reserve to discover uranium reserves has sparked fears of radioactive pollution.
The proposal has been kept in abeyance following protests by locals and environmentalists. If DAE exploration results in discovery of more reserves, mining activity may last long. Several research studies over the last two decades have revealed the presence of uranium in the water samples collected from Nagarjunasagar dam and wells in Nalgonda district.
The radionuclide content has varied from below detection level to several times more than the maximum permissible level of 30 micrograms per litre. Baseline surveys revealed that the dam is contaminated by uranium but the level is about 50 times below the detection level [?!
It will get compounded when the actual mining activity begins. The present contamination is due to soil erosion and use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides.
We have seen how uranium mining has impacted water, air and soil quality in Tummalapalle in Kadapa district. But in case of Lambapur-Peddagattu the problem will be more severe as a large water body is located in the vicinity," warned V Satyanarayana, an environmental activist.
Times of India Feb. About 41 per cent of the groundwater samples collected from sample sites in Nalgonda were found to have contamination levels higher than permitted.
Scientists say the Krishna river water and Nagarjunasagar will not be affected by the mining activity, although activists vehemently dispute it.
Levels of contamination in the air, water and soil were analysed and Radon concentrations and gamma radiation in the mineralised zones were found to be marginally high but not over the permissible limits.
Radiation levels were classified as elevated. However, groundwater remains a concern as 41 per cent of the analysed samples showed high levels of Uranium contamination. These would go up once mining commenced.IN past few years I stayed at Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai.
