Landslide Sweeps Away Mini Hydropower Project


Chautara (Sindhupalchowk), July 11: The Chilaune River Mini Hydropower Project based at Bhotang VDC-4, Larke, in the district has been swept away by landslide.

The locals are compelled to live in darkness after the project was swept away by the landslide. The six-kilowatt-capacity hydropower project was completed last February.  As many as 60 households were directly benefited by the project.  The pipe, canal and tank of the project were totally destroyed, therefore, the power generation has been halted for some days, said Govinda Koirala, programme coordinator at the Poverty Alleviation Fund, Sindhupalchok Chapter.

The project was constructed at a total cost of Rs. 2.6 million with the financial assistance of the Poverty Alleviation Fund, Energy and Environment Development Centre, local VDC, Melamchi Drinking Water Yangri- Larke Local Concerned Committee and local voluntary labour.  

The maintenance work of the project is in limbo for lack of budget and if it is allocated by the fund, the maintenance work would be done promptly, said Koirala.

   The project is about 26 kilometres from the district headquarter. RSS
