3. Heavy Metals, Slow Flow Killing the Narmada

It is common knowledge that Narmada is quite polluted thanks to the toxic effluents dumped at Ankaleshwar and Bharuch. But it still doesn’t pose a significant risk as much as minimum flow due to lack of water released from Sardar Sarovar Dam does.

Narmada is turning saline with the release of just 600 cusecs of water from the Sardar Sarovar Dam against the required 2,200 cusecs. The Central Water Commission (CWC) and the Gujarat Environment Management Institute (GEMI) pointed this out in their reports.
