Mhadei’s salinity will be studied

The water of Mhadei has to fulfil Goa’s demand for drinking water. If it is diverted, it could damage flora and fauna too. The state government informed the jal shakti ministry in 2010 that if Mhadei water is diverted, salinity could increase and cause environmental ruin. Therefore, the National Institute of Hydrology (NIH) was chosen to look into the salinity problem.

A group of scientists from NIH is expected to arrive in Goa on February 26. They will be visiting the Kalasa Bhandura project site in Kankumbi, Karnataka to examine Mhadei’s salinity. In the first report derived from their first site visit, scientists stated that salinity was found up to 22km from the mouth of the Mhadei. “Scientists of NIH have informed the state government that they will come to the state on February 26 to conduct the study,” Pramod Sawant, chief minister stated.
