Works of embankment begins in Gandak area to protect from eroding

Parasi, June 19: Works of embankment have begun in Gandak area to protect from erosion by Narayani River.

The River started eroding the area following incessant rainfall across the country.

The River further eroded the Spur number 12  under B Gap inviting risks of cutting-off Spur no 11 and 12 and the whole Gandak embankment. The river had eroded 110 meters of 163 meters of the Spur No. 12 last year.

The Indian side under the initiative of local Nepali administration has started the works of protection to prevent erosion of land in the Narayani River area.

The Indian side has been filling up gabion wires and sacks with sands, said Chief District Officer, Keshavraj Ghimire.

The river water has risen to more than 200,000 cusecs following incessant rainfall across the country for the last few days.

The river water would inundate the settlements in 13 VDCs if the river water reaches 350,000 cusecs.

The fear was arisen among the locals as the repair of the damaged spur was not done in time.

Locals claimed that the risk of inundating of the settlements increased as the Indian side did not pay attention in time to the construction and repair works to be carried out this year. RSS
