River Training, GDP, Damage to public utilities


River is considered as mother of civilization. Almost all of the world’s major civilizations have flourished on the bank of River. The main source of water on earth is rain which precipitates on earth surface and later on takes the form of the river, ponds, reservoir, etc. River runs on its natural course and hence it makes its own way what we call uncontrolled path. This causes damage to the banks as well as surrounding. We hear in the news every year that river Ganga, Yamuna … has caused damage to the civil structure or ‘so many villages are evacuated’ because of rise in the water level… etc. This happens because of river changing its course or overflowing from the bank It happens only because of lack of river training work. Yearly we are wasting billions of rupees and thousands of man-hour because of uncontrolled flow of river. This causes downfall of GDP of the nation. Basically India has agriculture based economy. If wasted water can be saved by use of proper engineering, India can never feel shortage of water, even in the years of drought. In this paper we shall see the importance of river training and methods of river training in brief.
