He also said that MPCB is currently examining the turbidity level of rivers, streams, lakes, wells and other water bodies in 70 stations.


Both the rivers which pass through the middle of Imphal City has become very polluted because of people living along the river and other people from far and wide dump their waste on the rivers.

The rivers which once used to provide clean water have now become a scene of disgust, he added.

A new project to clean Naga river will be sent to the Central Government after due discussion with experts so that the project gets approval by March 2022, he informed.

He also appealed the public to not dump their waste on the rivers.

He was accompanied by Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), Shillong, regional director Dr Z Changshan; Khagokpam Premkanta, senior environmental engineer, MPCB and other officials during his visit to a section of Naga river in Khoyathong and DM University.
