The state pollution control authority has found many discrepancies at the hazardous waste management plant and asked it to rectify the system within a week.
The Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB) conducted a surprise checking at the plant run by the Haryana Management Environment Society on Saturday.
The chairman of HSPCB along with Pradeeep Yadav, the regional officer of Gurgaon and Karan Singh, the regional officer of Faridabad, checked the waste management plant at Palli village.
It was found that the insinuators were not working and two parked vehicles loaded with hazardous waste were not covered.
Their documentation was also not complete and HSPCB officials collected the water samples and sent it for a test.
Pradeep Yadav, regional officer, HSPCB, Gurgaon, said: “We went there and we have asked them to rectify the problems, they have been given week's time otherwise they would be prosecuted.”
The plant with the capacity of 30,000 metric tonne, is the biggest hazardous waste treatment plant in north India.
