    Arrow Questions about the environmental clearance for new airport at Navi Mumbai

    I have following queries about the environmental affairs pertaining to the Navi Mumbai airport-

    - Mumbai witnessing havoc created during 26/07/2005 deluge due to diversion of the Mithi River. Will diversion of Ulve and Gadhi rivers not result in such situation? What will be the impact on natural river regime?

    - What will be the impact on the water levels in the surrounding villages- during fair season and during monsoon?

    - What are the similarities and differences of flora and fauna at Navi Mumbai and Dahanu (place where compensatory mangrove plantation is proposed)

    - The mangroves act as holding ponds during high tides and floods. Where will this water go after the mangroves are reclaimed by huge heights of embankments.

    - What is the quantity of earthwork needed for reclamation and where will it be sourced from? The hills surrounding Navi Mumbai are already destroyed beyond recognition from the sate they were just 20 years back. What will be the volume of trucks coming to the area for reclamation and how will it affect the normal traffic on approach roads?

    - At present there is activity like sand dredging in the creek. What will be the impact of the airport on sand accumulation in the creek?

    - Is it not true that the project owner appoints a paid agency for preparation of EIA and environmental mitigation plan and it is likely that the intent of such exercise is to get the project cleared by any means rather than focus on short term and long term impacts?

    - What is the probability that such agency gives an adverse report to the owner and asks for scrapping of the project or shifting it somewhere else?

    - What is the area considered for the EIA studies? Does it include entire Mumbai region covering Navi Mumbai, Mumbai harbour and neighbouring area? If so hat will be impact on Mumbai's eastern coast- Mumbai harbour, Mahul, Thane creek etc.

    - Whether it accounts for the collective environmental impact of the state government's other plans such as trans harbour link, SEZ etc or does it consider the airport in isolation.
