Abstract

The generation of municipal solid waste (MSW) in Indian cities has resulted in severe environmental and health problems due to improper management. Air Pollution is one of the major environmental concerns in India due open disposal and burning of MSW. In the present study, suspended particulate matter (SPM), respirable suspended particulate matter (RSPM), sulphur dioxide (SO2 ), oxides of nitrogen(NOX) and carbon monoxide (CO) were investigated in four sites around Kammiampet open dumping ground and a control site in Cuddalore, India. The result was indicated that the concentration of SPM and RSPM in all the study area were higher than NAAQS (CPCB, 2009) and there is an urgent need to regulate and monitor the ambient air quality in Cuddalore, especially around the dumping sites. The Air Quality Index (AQI) calculated for all study sites shows that moderately polluted which is a cause of acute health impacts to the habitants.
