Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. A small step towards making our surroundings green was taken on 13th August at Dehu-road Police station. Number of saplings was planted in the backyard of the station of different trees. Teams of various police officers with our dedicated students were made to distribute the saplings throughout the area. Saplings of trees like mango, neem, awala fruit and lemons. This step for ensuring a greener environment for the future generations was appreciated by the highly ranked police officers and they ensured us that good care will be taken of the newly planted saplings.

As geological studies are an integral part of any civil engineering project, the visit has invoked our interest in the subject and we got an opportunity to witness a rare collection of minerals and rocks housed in the museum.It was scheduled on 1st february 2020. ‘Gargoti’ The Mineral Museum is located at 32 kms from Nashik on Nashik-Shirdi highway in a small bustling town of Sinnar in the Indian state of Maharashtra. Sinnar is located at 19.85°N 74.0°E. It has an average elevation of 651.4 metres (2135 feet). Sinnar is one of the major industrial zones of Malegaon (MIDC) built around the city of Nashik which has multiple international production companies. The objective of visit was: To understand the natural process of formation of minerals and rocks. To understand the stratigraphy of Maharashtra- “The Deccan Traps” which is one of the largest continental flood basalt provinces on earth. To identify the main rock forming minerals of the earth crust.
The students of BE Civil Engineering, Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering and Research Ravet, Pune visited sewage treatment plant on 20th Sep 2019 at 10:30 AM. The first sewage treatment plant of its kind producing biogas based Power and Hydro Power. The capacity of the treatment plant is 30 MLD which runs on Modern SBR technology with power generation at Akurdi. The visit was very informative. Mr. Rahul Sawate sir explained the working of sewage treatment plant. Students studied and observed the working of sewage treatment plant which is completely automated and operated with very less manpower. Conventional SBR is improved by introducing Combi-Treat Unit ahead of CLSBR (Constant Level SBR) Unit to generate power from Bio-gas and to reduce organic load in CLSBR basins. I-SBR technology has potential to generate power from two sources: Power from Biogas through Combi-Treat unit by providing Bio-Gas engines, and Power from Hydraulic head available for treated sewage while flowing to discharge.
