About the Manual

The purpose of developing sector specific guidance manual for Township and Area
Development projects is to provide clear and concise information to all the stakeholders i.e
project proponent, environmental consultant, Rajasthan State Pollution Control Board
officials and the public to have a better understanding on the relevant environmental aspects
in the initial stage itself. This manual covers the legal requirements, clearance process,
environmental standards and maintenance of statutory records. The manual will also
covers the environmental aspects due the Township and Area Development projects. The
project proponent may use this manual to ensure that all the aspects of the environment due
to the project are addressed and adequate mitigation measures are planned in the proposed
environmental management plan and he will be fully aware of the environmental process
and requirements. The consultants will have similar understanding of the sector and the
procedures involved, so that the quality EIA or EMP reports will be improved. The
reviewers across the board may have same understanding about the sector and helps them
in the process of review and appraisal. Public who are concerned about a new or expansion
project, will have information about the environmental aspects, standards, regulatory
requirements etc., and have a better understanding about the developmental project. To
ensure effective utilization by different stakeholders this manual is divided into the
following chapters:

The preparation of sector specific guidance manual by Rajasthan State Pollution Control
Board is in line with National Environmental Policy 2006, which emphasizes on:

- Formulate and periodically update, codes of good practices for environment for
different category of industries
- Ensure faster decision making with greater transparency and access to information,
together with necessary capacity building

The manual is meant to serve as a guidance purpose. In case of interpretation of any


question related to law, the provisions of the original law and the rules made thereunder
with various government directions/resolutions will have to be read and followed. In case
of amendment to the original Act/Rules/Notifications made thereunder, the provisions as
amended from time to time shall be applicable.

4.2 Guidelines for the project developer

The project developer is advised to refer to the following documents:

• EIA guidance manual for Building construction, Townships and Area Development of
MoEF
• National Building Code of India 2005
• Development Control Rules – Town and Country Planning

Design layout should ensure adequate solar access and ventilation

Depending upon the geographical latitude and sky conditions a precise analysis of the local
climate; surroundings, urban development and surrounding terrain in relation to solar
access, daylight availability and predominant air movement should be carried out. This
would control minimum distances to be kept between the built up volume and open spaces.
The design of the layout should allow for wind protection and solar access in winter, and at
the same time provide adequate sun protection and ventilation in summer months. The size
and density of the layout should provide desired comfort levels maximum from natural
resources. Solar path analysis and wind pattern assessment should be carried out in the
design stage that would help developers decide upon the alternatives for the type of layout
and the proportion of the built volume and open space in the layout.

 
TOWNSHIPS & AREA DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS 33
The submittals should be provided only to indicate the optimized layout of buildings on the
site with respect to sun path and optimized solar access and availability of wind for natural
ventilation. Following are the factors, may be considered during the lay out design.

Open spaces

The proportion of open space and its built-up edges should be designed such that it ensures
winter solar access and summer ventilation. Vegetation may provide as shading and
promote evaporative cooling. In hot dry climates, evaporative cooling through appropriately
sized wet surfaces or fountains have a desirable effect.

Design layout should ensure the following

• Area allotted for Sewage Treatment plant


• Area allotted for of Garbage Segregation
• Area allotted for of DG Sets
• Parking requirement should meet the local body requirements
• Area for visitors parking
• Area for green belt and lawns

Sustainable site planning

Site planning is a vital component of any type of development activity and is the first
step. However, ideally the design team should be involved in site selection and
should assess the appropriateness of the site relative to the proposed development. Analysis
and assessment of the site characteristics in terms of its capacity to provide natural resources
inside the building such as light, air and water without damaging the natural environment
should be carried out during site selection and analysis process

Sustainable site planning is a critical phase of the green design process. When selecting a
potential site, you should look to eliminate or minimize the disruption of the existing
environment as much as possible. Using the topography of the site is paramount. This
allows for detailed planning that outline the existing and proposed design concepts to
include the home location, vegetation, land slope, setbacks, and other crucial factors

Cut and fill: Preserve natural slopes to aid natural drainage. The amount of excavation
should be minimized as far as possible. Removing or importing soil (also known as cut and
fill) adds to environmental emissions via the transporting of the soil. Furthermore,
rearranging the landscape may disturb the flow of water being directed away from the
project. This may affects the original contours of the surrounding areas

Landscaping: Preserve natural landscaping whereever possible and use vegetation of native
to the environment. Layout and form of the project must conform to the landscape of
the area without unduly affecting the scenic features of that place.

Land use distribution at scheme level: Land use distribution at scheme level shall be
planned while designing the project lay out.

 
TOWNSHIPS & AREA DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS 34
Ambient environment quality in the region: Levels of air, noise and water pollution should
be surveyed and considered carefully before implementing the building design. For
example: High level of air, noise and water pollution and location near pollution sources
such as heavy traffic roadways should be considered carefully to implement developing the
area.

Availability of infrastructure: Infrastructure requirement should be properly assessed such


as:

ƒ Development of Roads
ƒ Development of Drainage
ƒ Providing Water supply
ƒ Providing Power and Telecom facilities
ƒ Planting trees along with roads
ƒ Storm water management and Rain water Harvesting System
ƒ Street lights

Site Location: Urban infrastructure and facilities, public transport, infrastructure for power,
water supply to meet the estimated requirement, sewage system network should be
available nearby or should be made available with minimum environment impact. The
following information may help in assessing requirements of infrastructure:

ƒ Distance from Highway


ƒ Distance from Municipal road
ƒ Width of Road adjacent to the site
ƒ Nearest Bus Stop and Railway Station
ƒ Distance from facilities like post office, police station, fire station
ƒ Distance from nearest bank, school, college, market etc.

Onsite management of waste: The following requirements are very important from
environmental consideration

ƒ Land acquired should be minimum but sufficient to provide for a green belt wherein the
treated wastewater, if possible/ suitable, could be utilized from wastewater treatment
systems.
ƒ Adequate space may be provided for storing solid wastes. The space and the waste can
be made available for possible reuse in future.
ƒ Adequate space shall be provided for construction of STP

Diverse Use Facilities in the layout development: The diverse use facilities such as Bank,
Community /civic center, Convenience store, Hair care, Hardware store, Health club or
outdoor recreation facility, Laundry/dry cleaner Library, Medical/dental office, Pharmacy
(stand-alone), Place of worship, Police/fire station, Restaurant, School, Supermarket,
Theater, Over Head Tank, Sewage treatment plant, Garbage segregation point should be
assessed

Estimation of water demand: The water demand should be estimated by adopting the
WHO guideline of minimum water requirement of 135 LPCD for a family of 5 for each
dwelling. Care must be taken to adopt maximum possible number of dwellings in a plot.

 
TOWNSHIPS & AREA DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS 35
The water requirements for different types of buildings should be estimated as given in
Annexure 13

Estimation of solid waste generation

The garbage quantity needs to be estimated by adopting 0.5 kg/head for residential areas
and 0.3 kg/head for commercial areas. Other solid wastes anticipated are STP sludge, waste
oils, batteries, bio medical wastes.

Construction Phase: The following should be considered during the construction stage:

ƒ Road construction
ƒ Storm water drainage construction
ƒ Other infrastructure
ƒ Material requirement and lead distances
ƒ Cut and fill quantities (excavation)
ƒ Disposal of excess cut material and or source of fill materials including lead distances.
ƒ Walkable streets
ƒ Street network
ƒ Access to surrounding vicinity
ƒ Heat island reduction
ƒ Water recycling
ƒ Composting of garbage and use of manure
ƒ Use of solar lighting and street lighting
ƒ Use of solar heating

Ground Water Scenario of Rajasthan
Hydrogeology

The State can be divided into three hydrogeological units namely, unconsolidated
sediments, semi-consolidated sediments and consolidated rocks. The unconsolidated
sediments are of two types- alluvial sediments and aeoline deposits. The Alluvial deposits
are confined to Barmer, Jalore and Jodhpur district, consisting of sand, clay, gravel and
cobbles. Valley fills have been reported from Jhunjhunu, Ajmer, Bhilwara and Udaipur
district. The Aeoline sediments constitute one of the major aquifers east of major fault, east
of Bikaner. It occupies an area of 1400 sq.k m. The aquifer thickness is 40 to 80 m. The yield
of wells ranges from 100 to 150 m3/hr. Semi-consolidated formations include sandstones,
limestones and Aur beds, covering Jaisalmer and Barmer districts. The dugwells in Jaisalmer
limestones yield 13 to 68 m3/day. The yield of wells in Lathi sandstone varies from 50-150
m3/hr. The consolidated rocks includes gneiss, granites, schist, phyllites, marble and
Vindhyan sandstones, limestone, quartzite and basaltic flows, mostly restricted to eastern
part of the State. The yield prospect is limited unless the well is located near major
lineaments or any other weak planes. The ground water quality is in general poor (brackish
to saline) at deeper levels.

Annexure 17
Rain Water Harvesting Structures

Rainwater available from rooftops of buildings, paved and unpaved areas goes waste. This
water can be recharged to aquifer and can be utilized gainfully at the time of need. The
rainwater harvesting system needs to be designed in a way that it does not occupy large
space for collection and recharge system. A few techniques of roof top rainwater harvesting
in urban areas are described below.

Roof Top Rain Water Harvesting Through Recharge Pit

• In alluvial areas where permeable rocks are exposed on the land surface or at very
shallow depth, roof top rainwater harvesting can be done through recharge pits.
• The technique is suitable for buildings having a roof area of 100 sq.m. and are
constructed for recharging the shallow aquifers.
• Recharge Pits may be of any shape and size and are generally constructed 1.0 to 2.0 m.
wide and 2.0 to 3.0 deep, which are back filled with boulders (5 - 20 cm), gravels (5 – 10
mm) and coarse sand (1.5 - 2.0 mm) in graded form. Boulders at the bottom, gravels in
between and coarse sand at the top so that the silt content that will come with runoff will
be deposited on the top of the coarse sand layer and can easily be removed. For smaller
roof area, pit may be filled with broken bricks/ cobbles.
• A mesh should be provided at the roof so that leaves or any other solid waste / debris is
prevented from entering the pit and a desilting /collection chamber may also be
provided at the ground to arrest the flow of finer particles to the recharge pit.
• The top layer of sand should be cleaned periodically to maintain the recharge rate.
• By-pass arrangement be provided before the collection chamber to reject the first
showers.

 
TOWNSHIPS & AREA DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS 83
Roof Top Rain Water Harvesting Through Recharge Trench

• Recharge trenches are suitable for buildings having roof area of 200-300 sq. m. and
where a permeable stratum is available at shallow depths
• Trench may be 0.5 to 1.0 m wide, 1.0 to 1.5 m deep and 10 to 20 m. long depending upon
availability of water to be recharge
• These are back filled with boulders (5-20cm), gravel (5-10 mm) and coarse sand (1.5-2.0
mm) in graded form – boulders at the bottom, gravel in between and coarse sand at the
top so that the silt content that will come with runoff will be coarse sand at the top of the
sand layer and can easily be removed
• A mesh should be provided at the roof so that leaves or any other solid waste/debris is
prevented from entering the trenches and a desilting/collection chamber may also be
provided on ground to arrest the flow of finer particles to the trench
• By-pass arrangement be provided before the collection chamber to reject the first
showers
• The top layer of sand should be cleaned periodically to maintain the recharge rate

 
TOWNSHIPS & AREA DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS 84
Roof Top Rain Water Harvesting Through Existing Tube wells

• In areas where the shallow aquifers have dried up and existing tube wells are tapping
deeper aquifer, roof to rain water harvesting through existing tube well can be adopted
to recharge the deeper aquifers
• PVC pipes of 10 cm dia are connected to roof drains to collect rainwater. The first roof
runoff is let off through the bottom of drainpipe. After closing the bottom pipe, the
rainwater of subsequent rain showers is taken through a T to an online PVC filter. The
filter may be provided before water enters the tube wells. The filter is 1 –1.2 m. in length
and is made up of PVC pipe. It’s diameter should vary depending on the area of roof, 15
cm if roof area is less than 150 sq m and 20 cm if the roof area is more. The filter is
provided with a reducer of 6.25 cm on both the sides. Filter is divided into three
chambers by PVC screens so that filter material is not mixed up. The first chamber is
filled up with gravel (6-10mm), middle chamber with pebbles (12-20 mm) and last
chamber with bigger pebbles (20-40 mm)
• If the roof area is more, a filter pit may be provided. Rainwater from roofs is taken to
collection/desilting chambers located on ground. These collection chambers are
interconnected as well as connected to the filter pit through pipes having a slop of 1:15.
The filter pit may vary in shape and size depending upon available runoff and are back-
filled with graded material, boulder at the bottom, gravel in the middle and sand at the
top with varying thickness (0.30- 0.50m) and may be separated by screen. The pit is
divided into two chambers, filter material in one chamber and other chamber is kept
empty to accommodate excess filtered water and to monitor the quality of filtered water.
A connecting pipe with recharge well is provided at the bottom of the pit for recharging
of filtered water through well

Roof Top Rain Water Harvesting Through Trench With Recharge Well

• In areas where the surface soil is impervious and large quantities of roof water or surface
runoff is available within a very short period of heavy rainfall, the use of trench/ pits is
made to store the water in a filter media and subsequently recharge to ground water
through specially constructed recharge wells
• This techniques is ideally suited for area where permeable horizon is within 3m below
ground level
• Recharge well of 100-300 diameter is constructed to a depth of at least 3.0 to 5.0 m below
the water level. Based on the lithology of the area well assembly is designed with slotted
pipe against the shallow and deeper aquifer
• A lateral trench of 1.5-to 3.0 m width and 10 to 30 m length, depending upon the
availability of water is constructed with the recharge well in the centre
• The number of recharge wells in the trench can be decided on the basis of water
availability and local vertical permeability of the rocks
• The trench is backfilled with boulders, gravels and coarse sand to act as a filter media for
the recharge wells
• If the aquifer is available at greater depth say more than 20 m, a shallow shaft of 2.0 to
5.0 m diameter and 3.0 –5.0 meters deep may be constructed depending upon
availability of runoff. Inside the shaft a recharge well of 100-300 mm dia is constructed
for recharging the available water to the deeper aquifers. At the bottom of the shaft a
filter media is provided to avoid choking of recharge well

Water Quality Inlets

Water quality inlets (WQIs), also commonly called oil/grit separators or oil/water
separators, consist of a series of chambers that promote sedimentation of coarse materials
and separation of free oil (as opposed to emulsified or dissolved oil) from storm water. Most
WQIs also contain screens to help retain larger or floating debris, and many of the newer
designs also include a coalescing unit that helps to promote oil/water separation. WQIs
typically capture only the first portion of runoff for treatment and are generally used for
pretreatment before discharging to other best management practices (BMPs).

A typical WQI, as shown in following Figure, consists of a sedimentation chamber, an oil


separation chamber, and a discharge chamber. The basic WQI design is often modified to
improve performance.

Advantages and Disadvantages

WQIs can effectively trap trash, debris, oil and grease, and other floatables that would
otherwise be discharged to surface waters (Schueler, 1992). In addition, a properly esigned
and maintained WQI can serve as an effective BMP for reducing hydrocarbon contamination
in receiving water sediments. While WQIs are effective in removing heavy sediments and
floating oil and grease, they have demonstrated limited ability to separate dissolved or
emulsified oil from runoff. WQIs are also not very effective at removing pollutants such as
nutrients or metals, except where the metals removal is directly related to sediment removal.

Wind Towers

Wind towers are generally used in hot and dry climates for cooling. Wind towers operate in
many ways depending on the time of day wind availability. Wind towers work on the
principle of changing air density in and around the tower.

During daytime, hot ambient air comes into contact with the cool, top part of the tower and
gets cooled. Cool, dense air sinks through the tower and into living species (through vents
and openings). Increased wind velocity improves the performance of wind towers. During
the night the reverse takes place. Cool air comes in contact with the warm inner surface of
the tower. This air in turn gets warmed up, rises and is exhausted through openings. The
pressure difference thus created pulls the cool night air through the doors and windows into
the building.

Due to small storage capacities, sensible cooling may stop after several hours of operation on
hot summer days. In order to improve the efficiency of its operation, evaporating cooling is
used in conjunction with sensible cooling. Wind towers can bring about a difference of 10-
150C in arid climates. Wind towers can be combined with ground cooling to give better
performance and have been used effectively in several buildings in the Middle East and
West Asia.

It may be noted that wind towers are used only for summer cooling. Proper care should be
taken to close the vents and openings during the winter.
