Project » Environmental Movement in the South River Rehabilitation, Ilam

Category : Environment Supported By : The Development Fund  Start From : 01 Dec, 2008 Till : 31 Dec, 2010

With a purpose to reduce the water pollution and degradation of water quality of Mai River, NCDC has implemented “Environmental Movement in the South River Rehabilitation, Ilam”, since December 2008 with financial support from Development Fund Norway. Mai River being the main river system of Ilam district, streams running through settlement area within Ilam Municipality are directly connected to it. The river serves as a water tank for the lower belts of Ilam district. It serves as an important source for consumption and agriculture. The adjoining forest along the Mai River and Mai River itself is an important habitat for different wildlife especially birds species. Along with the increasing urbanization the streams of the municipality are currently not well managed. The streams are being contaminated by solid waste from Bazzar, hospital, slaughter house, and municipality drainages. There is negative impact on ecosystem of river as well as on the population using the river. The project has integrated and will implement its activities based on the Ilam Water Safety Plan which include better drainage, waste water treatment, toilet management and waste management. The project is being implemented in close coordination and partnership with Ilam Municipality, District Livestock Service office, Department of Urban Development and Building Construction, District Soil Conservation Office and other district based environment related community based organizations and NGOs. The major activities of the project include like awareness raising, solid waste management, organic farming, gully control, plantation, Reed bed water treatment plant construction, Public toilet construction, management of slaughterhouse, river monitoring, biogas from solid waste, supporting eco-clubs and strengthening local organizations.
