The Goa State Pollution Control Board is an autonomous statutory organization constituted on 1st July, 1988 under the Water (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1974. Prior to that, when Goa formed part of the erstwhile Union Territory of Goa, Daman and Diu, the Central Board for the Prevention and Control of Water Pollution was performing the functions of the State Board in Goa. The Central Pollution Control Board at Ponda-Goa had established a Section Office for the purpose. The same arrangement continued
till the constitution of the State Board. In the meanwhile, the Section Office was re-constituted as West Zonal Office and shifted to Baroda on 4th April, 1988. All the relevant records pertaining to Goa were transferred to the Goa State Pollution Control Board on 12th September, 1988.
The Goa State Pollution Control Board, after its constitution, established its office in the Goa Medical College Complex at Bambolim. In June 1991, the Government of Goa allotted independent premises for the Board at Patto- Panaji, where the Board shifted its’ office in September 1991.
On 15th August, 2002 the Board acquired new premises on the 1st floor in Dempo Tower at Patto Plaza, Panaji and shifted its full set-up to this new premise. The office as well as the laboratory were operating from here. Subsequently, on 15th August, 2005, additional premises measuring 311.86 Sq. mt. was acquired on the 4th floor of the same building which was dedicated to the Board Laboratory.
Further the Board has plans to construct a new State of the Art building for establishing a full fledged Laboratory at Saligao by the next year.
