Professor Anup Malani from the University of Chicago Law School is working on a sensor network to map and predict pollution, effluents in Godavari. The project started eight months ago and has so far identified two "hubspots" of pollution. Through cloud-based data collection and real-time mapping, the University of Chicago research team intend to demonstrate importance and value of detecting pollutants that enter the river in the form of human waste, organic materials and chemical contaminants.
“We’ve had debates with town planners who told us that all the pollution gets washed away… Is that true? We need to find out”
