Address water pollution in Dhaka

Published : Wednesday, 12 June, 2024 at 12:00 AM  Count : 211

Dear Sir
I am writing to draw urgent attention to the severe water pollution crisis in Dhaka. The citys rivers and water bodies are increasingly contaminated by industrial waste, sewage, and plastic debris, posing grave health risks and environmental damage.

Buriganga River, once the lifeline of Dhaka, is now among the most polluted rivers in world. Factories discharge untreated effluents directly into the water, and household sewage adds to toxic mix. This pollution devastates aquatic life and contaminates the water supply, causing diseases among the population.
Government and relevant authorities must enforce stricter regulations on waste disposal and ensure that industries treat their waste before discharge. Public awareness campaigns about the consequences of pollution and the importance of sustainable practices are crucial.

Immediate and concerted efforts are needed to restore and protect Dhakas water resources. Clean water is a basic human right, and it is imperative to act now for the health and well-being of current and future generations.
