The chemical water from the premises is "discharged into an industrial drain purposefully made by the officials of the industry which flows into Chambal river located around 300 meters and thereby the toxic water is drained into the Gandhi Sagar dam downstream the Chambal nadi," the applicant said. This water is supplied to Nagda and Kachhrod for consumption.
