Work to improve the Colva creek in Goa will be completed by December

The Colva village of Goa attracts tourists because of its beautiful beach and other attractions. The work to improve the Colva creek and make it more attractive will be completed by the end of December 2021.

The construction of a retaining wall and the improvement of the creek costs approximately Rs 9.74 crore. Forty percent of the work has been completed. This was revealed by Filipe Nery Rodrigues, Minister for Water Resources. This project is important as many tourists visit Colva.

The creek had to be cleaned as there was sewage discharge from business establishments. The residents of the village told that the creek was clean before and they could even fish there. Benaulim MLA Churchill Alemao forbids any sewage release into the creek. If this is not followed, the guilty establishments will be shut down.

The Water Resource Development (WRD) department has taken up four other projects. This includes renovation of sluice gates and bund of Igorjem Tollem, work to protect River Sal’s bank and pond at Chadvaddo, Benaulim.
