In an effort to mitigate the environmental impact caused by the accumulation of debris at the Ganol dam site, authorities have initiated a clean-up operation. Led by Deputy Commissioner (DC) of West Garo Hills (WGH), Jagdish Chelani, the operation aims to clear the site and restore its pristine condition.
The West Garo Hills district administration has begun the operation to clean-up the Ganol River, where trash is being dumped indiscriminately, especially from the Rongram market upstream. The administration sprang into action when heavy rains brought all the waste from upstream to the Ganol Hydroelectric project’s dam downstream. The operation duration is 72 hours, depending on the weather.
