Measures for Clean Rivers in Arunachal Pradesh

We have a fixed amount of water on earth in the form of solid, liquid and gas. Therefore, the sources of clean water for drinking and other purposes are limited too. These water resources are getting polluted due to everyday human-related factors. Most measures for the clean river are not working fully due to presence from the grassroots level of various pollutant factors that are social, religious, cultural and industrial. Social and religious practices like dumping dead bodies in the water, bathing, throwing waste in the water should be ceased in drinkable water resources like rivers, sea, oceans etc.

Additionally, by using environment-friendly products that do not go on to become pollutants, we can reduce the amount of water pollution caused by a household. Self-cleaning of beverage bottles, disposals and other wastes from the water bodies like streams, rivers and sea etc. after picnics and other merrymaking events should also be monitored and maintained. Water wastage is a major problem globally so we should start by saving water from our homes.

Through small changes in saving water domestically, we can make a huge difference. Conserving water should be one of our main objectives to save nature. Let’s not ignore this aspect of our lives anymore.

MyGov Arunachal supplicates for suggestions on various measures that can be undertaken to maintain clean river in the state.

Those places should be identified where people come in contact with more rivers. There should be a system where people cannot throw any object or other material in the river. If you want to throw, then you should make a separate place for it so that it can honor its faith.

t is particularly painful to watch the waste being dumped in the Kameng because it once used to be a very clean river, says Taba. “We used to drink from it and use its water to cook. But since the start of the SBM, a vast stretch of the river has been filled with floating plastic bottles and other types of waste,” he said.

However, DUDA did not know how to dispose off the waste. When we contacted them last year, they said they did not have a waste treatment plant or landfill to dispose off the waste,” said Taba, who is also a member of YMfCR-AP.

He said the men of DUDA collect the garbage in the morning, put it in their truck and then go and dump it in the Kameng. “Sometimes, they burn it,” says Taba.

“Sir, it is ridiculous that the UD being stakeholders and implementing agency of the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) is dumping all the garbage and waste into the Kameng river which is the biggest threat to the cleanliness of rivers and aquatic life,” the letter, noted.
