Jammu, November 21

A senior government official in Jammu has called for an ambitious project to arrest the dumping of undesirable effluents into Tawi river during a review meeting held on the progress of various ongoing sewerage network projects and new plants proposed for the city.

Jammu Divisional Commissioner Raghav Langer directed the agencies to categorise their targets with respect to number of households, effluent volume and nallahs (streams) to be tapped after seeking a detailed stage-wise progress on each individual portion of the city’s sewerage network, officials said on Sunday.

Langer expressed concern over the dumping of undesirable city effluents into Tawi river and asked the agencies concerned to design the ambitious project to check the hazard at the earliest and set separate targets on the project for its right and left banks.

The meeting was informed that roughly 40 per cent of the projected number of households and its population on the right bank of the river has been linked with sewerage lines, the officials said. — PTI
