Author(s): Waheed Ahmad Hurra and Abhilasha Bhawsar

Abstract: This research study was intended to scrutinize the environmental and community health impacts of municipal solid waste dumpsites in Bhanpur and Adampur Chhawani, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India. Primary data were collected through a semi- structured questionnaire that was used to gather information on environmental characteristics and population health of Bhanpur and Adampur Chhawani communities’ residents. A total of 100 respondents, 50 from Bhanpur and 50 Adampur Chhawani were randomly selected for this study. In our survey, self-reported health problems of residents surrounding Adampur Chhawani dumpsite were typhoid (58%), chest related illness (24%), cholera and diarrhea (34%), malaria (22%) and skin infections (16%). But when compared to the residents residing around Bhanpur dumpsite the number of respondents who had, typhoid, chest related illness, cholera and diarrhea, malaria and skin infections, stood at (52%), (8%), (22%), (12%) & (4%) respectively. It was found that residents living nearby Adampur Chhawani dumpsite are most affected by the dumpsite. This is due to the fact that Adampur Chhawani dumpsite is operational dumpsite and receives waste on daily basis while as Bhanpur dumpsite is closed for waste dump. The study therefore concludes that the dumpsite should be properly managed and cared to minimize its effects on the environment.
