River erosion takes serious turn in Dimla

UNB

Nilphamari: River erosion has taken a serious turn in Dimla upazila of the district threating to wash away the dwelling houses of at least two thousand families in Charkharibari Mouja, reports UNB.

The people of Chotokhata, Banpara, Baishpukur Char, Chatunama Bhendabari Forest Char in Dimla upazila have been affected badly as the roads and houses were submerged following the onrush of hilly water from the upstream.

The only sand embankment in the area is under threat of erosion, according to locals.

“About 400 meters of the dam has already been gorged into the river,” they said.

Besides, the ten-meter approach road near dam no. four at Dohalpara point was also eroded in the river due to the rise of water in the Teesta river.

Meanwhile, more than 10,000 people of 23 villages in the char areas of Teesta and Dharala rivers have been trapped in flood water in Lalmonirhat district following onrush of water from upstream hilly areas.

The officials of Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB) said the situation became worsened as India had opened the sluice-gates of the Gazaldoba barrage.

However, the water level of Teesta River at Dalia Teesta Barrage Point has been flowing below the danger level on Wednesday.

Rafiqul Alam Chowdhury, executive engineer of BWDB in Dalia said the flood situations have slightly improved in the district as 44 sluice gates of Teesta Barrage have been opened to control the flow of water.
