Domestic as well as industrial gas pipe line serves great purposes of any nation. The area which covers the layout of these Pipelines also causes severe environmental impact on the natural resources of a nation. In the present study, emphasize has been given on environmental Impact assessment and further on risk analysis Study. The study for the same has been done on a proposed underground pipeline in Maharastra, India. The work highlights the type of impact and the concentration of environmental pollutant at particular project site. This pipeline is used for the transportation of LPG, which is highly inflammable material. The major pollutants studied in the present study are sulphur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen (NOX), particulate matter (PM10), (PM2.5) and suspended particulate matter (SPM). The results suggest that the average SPM, PM10, PM2.5, SO2,and NOx concentration found is in the order of 129 µg/m3,58.9 µg/m3,27.8 µg/m3,9.74 µg/m3 and 16.12 µg/m3 respectively at different monitoring station located in project site. The result further showed the concentration of pollutant is within the permissible concentration as per the international standard. The impact on ambient air quality is assessed considering the existing baseline air quality.
