NEW DELHI, Aug 18: The government has sanctioned 13 projects pertaining to geo-mapping, sewerage management and wetland conservation among others at an estimated cost of around Rs 818 crore.
The National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) organised the 44th meeting of the Executive Committee on Wednesday under the chairmanship of G Asok Kumar, Director General, NMCG, the Jal Shakti Ministry said in a statement.
In the meeting, 13 projects pertaining to geo-mapping in Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and the NCT of Delhi, sewerage management in Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal, riverfront development works in Uttarakhand, wetland conservation, Arth Ganga and refurbishment of gates of Belia Circular Canal in Kolkata were approved. The estimated cost of these projects is around Rs 818 crore.
For scientific geo-mapping of river Ganga and its tributaries, three projects were approved.
These include 'Fluvial Geomorphology mapping of Hindon River Basin' by NEER. Hindon river is a second-level tributary of the Ganga. The mapping of point sources of pollution as well as fluvial geomorphological changes brought about by anthropogenic activity or natural factors will aid in tributary river rejuvenation and bring about a bottom-up approach for maintaining the health of the main river systems.
The prime objectives of this project are delineation of fluvial geomorphological features along the Hindon river basin, identification of decadal changes in fluvial geomorphological, delineation of stream network and suitable recharge zones, delineation of point sources of pollutant input close to the confluence of the Hindon river analysis and geographic information system, architectural interventions on Sustainable River Embankment Strategies and identifying potential zones for ghat development.
The estimated cost of this project is Rs 16.4 lakhs. A similar proposal for Dehradun - 'Geo-Ganga: Space-based mapping & Monitoring of Ganga River' using UAV/Survey and remote sensing techniques costing Rs 5.4 crore was also given the go-ahead. This project will be implemented by the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing, Dehradun.
Another project for provision of services for acquisition, processing and delivery of high resolution images, thematic layer of drain, sand mining, illegal dumping, encroachment in riverbed, land use or land cover map using airborne light detection and ranging and optical sensor was approved.
