Condition of the rivers of Dhaka

River pollution in dhaka

The government over the years has allowed industrialists to pollute the rivers, canals and wetlands in and around the city  to such an extent that surface water turned pitch black in several spots. Pollution has set in on the Buriganga, Shitalakhya and Balu rivers and made it almost impossible to treat the water. The water and Sewerage Authority  (wasa), is supplying stinky water by purifying it with cholorine ammonia sulfate. But most of the industrialists have defeid the directive and the government also did not take action against any of the violators. Even the department of environment (DoE) does not know much about it. Besides industry generated liquid and solid waste, most of the human excreta directly goes down the rivers through underground pipelines as nearly 70 percent houses are not connected to the excrete treatment plant. Waste from these industries is connected with the sewerage system that directly goes into tha rivers around the city. In fact, the rivers have become a dumping ground of all kinds of solid, liquid, and chemical waste of bank side population.
