Master plan for flood control in Hooghly

Master plan for flood control in Hooghly

A master plan has been prepared by the Bengal Government’s Irrigation Department to carry out major work to ensure that flood-like situations become history for people residing in Hooghly district and its surrounding regions.

The department has taken up a major project of strengthening embankments and improvement of other necessary infrastructure in Hooghly to avoid flood-like situations during monsoon. The main tasks that will be carried out include strengthening of embankments, de-siltation of rivers and dredging of canals.

The project will be carried out in two phases – in the first phase in Arambagh and Goghat and in the second phase in Khanakul and Pursura. While Rs 60 crore would be spend for the first phase, Rs 80 crore would be spent for the second.

It may be mentioned that two master plans have been prepared to check floods in north Bengal. One master plan is for Cooch Behar, Jalpaiguri, Alipurduar and Darjeeling district while the other one is for Malda, Uttar Dinajpur and Dakshin Dinajpur districts.
