Dhaleshwari River under threat of pollution
Speakers at a discussion on Tuesday urged the government to take proper measures to help control pollution of the Dhaleshwari River, as it is under threat by waste from newly relocated tannery industries. They also suggested that the government run all environmental protection measures possible, including Central Effluent Treatment Plants to minimise  damage to the river and its ecology. Raising concerns over the pollution of Dhaleshwari River, BRAC University’s Professor Emeritus Ainun Nishat said: “The relocation of tannery industries from Hazaribagh to Savar was inevitable, as this particular industry has ruined the Buriganga River by its untreated waste over the years. Dhaleshwari River may suffer the same fate if proper measures are not taken to protect it.” He made the statement while addressing a discussion on the importance of   water bodies at CIRDAP auditorium in Dhaka. The program was organised by the Association for Land Reforms and Development to mark World Water Day on March 22.
