      A high degree of pollution by tannery effluent contamination has been recorded in an irrigation reservoir in North Arcot district, Tamil Nadu. Seepage of contaminants into drinking water wells has also been observed. The tannery effluent is found to inflict changes in succinate dehydrogenase activity levels in the hepatopancreas ofPila globosa, a common inhabitant of the polluted environment.
