Health Desk--7 Sep’18: Aiming to purify polluted water of Hatirjheel Lake, Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (RAJUK) has undertaken an initiative.
Due to non-stop falling of liquid and solid waste into the lake, water pollution still remains a major concern in the lake.
According to the official sources, RAJUK has undertaken a Tk 49 crore project to purify polluted water of Hatirjheel Lake after it examined water from its different spots at laboratories in Japan and Australia.
The laboratory reports suggest that presently Hatirjheel water pollution reached at an ‘unacceptable’ level and it is not conducive to biodiversity and poses risk to ecological balance.
The combined purification process, prepared by an Australian consultant firm, includes high-powered compressor, installation of air supplying small pipes at the bottom of the lake to raise oxygen level to acceptable level.
