The most pressing problem faced by any city center in India nowadays is Municipal Solid Waste Management (MSWM). Rapid urbanization and converting life have caused the era of massive amounts of garbage and waste within the city regions, so much so, over the last few years, just the managing this Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) has assumed the share of a primary organizational, economic and environmental task. Despite MSWM being a chief task of the local governments, normally accounting for a massive part of the municipal budget - about 20% to 50%, the Urban Local Bodies (ULBS) are not able to offer effective services. Most of the ULBs do now not even have dependable MSW generation estimates. Unfortunate fallout of rapid urbanization without good enough infrastructure backup is that during all Indian cities/cities, disposal of waste is carried out indiscriminately, main to stray animal menace, clogged drains and unfold of diseases. The procedure of collection, transportation, and disposal of MSW is not complete in a maximum of the towns/cities with rubbish thousands final unattended till the severity reaches unmanageable proportions. Also, the high organic content material of Indian MSW, compounded through the recent, and humid tropical weather results in the rapid decomposition of the uncollected waste and is an ever-present health risk. Municipal waste that is improperly disposed of has a severe and dangerous effect on a wide range of areas. Along with waste discarded close to rivers, lakes, and streams, trash dumped in the street or in open areas poses a threat to public health. Delivers contaminated water. When the trash is burned outside instead of being properly disposed of, pollutants are produced and hazardous gases are released into the atmosphere. Throwing no biodegradable items down open drains causes them to enter the sewer system, blocking pipes and harming the infrastructure. The risks associated with the disposal of untreated medical and commercial waste are increased by the release of pathogens and poisonous substances, which represent a serious threat not only to human life but also to that of plants and animals. The effects of trash thrown in the area go beyond just being an eyesore; entire landscapes are destroyed, and certain habitats for flora and fauna are lost. All of these issues are commonplace in India, where tremendous portions of strong waste remain uncollected within the streets, along side primary roads, in empty plots of land, on downhill slopes, and in illegal dumps.

As urbanization is increasing day by day the runoff or storm water in a small city Panna is increasing due to which the transportation problem occurs in the city which leads to an improper flow of transportation in the city. Due to urbanization the proper groundwater recharge technique is not present which leads to increase of runoff in the city, as the soil surface is permeable in which groundwater recharge by infiltration can occur is reducing and resulting in increased surface run off in the Panna city. The effect of transportation flow can be reduced by use of runoff water for increase of water table of city. Infiltration system like infiltration trenches should be made for reducing surface runoff which also increases the infiltration rate of the city, by making of infiltration trenches an area below the footpath and providing filter media in it which has a different layer of gravel and sand due to which filtered water goes inside the earth surface. This helps in reducing the storm water or surface runoff in small city Panna.

The study aims to treat potable water using waste material (tealeaves) and adsorption method. Some water samples were chosed from varied regions in Baghdad city. The samples were exposed to “pH, conductivity, turbidity, total dissolved solids (TDS), and total suspended solids (TSS)” tests. Before performing the tealeaves treatment to the potable water, the pH and the conductivity values were acceptable per the Iraqi slandered. Adsorption and filtration methods were carried out using tealeaves as an adsorbent material for all potable water regions. The results showed that the adsorption process did not affect the pH and the conductivity values. In contrast, the turbidity values for all regions were decreased, and the TDS and TSS were minimized. As a result, Tealeaves is very effectible and successful in minimizing or eliminating TDS, TSS, and turbidity in treating potable water using the adsorption method.
