Dehradun, Feb 16 (Language) The State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) personnel are monitoring the watershed of the Rishiganga River, despite not posing an immediate threat from a lake built at 14,000 feet in the high Himalayan region of Uttarakhand. A few days ago satellite images confirmed that a lake is being formed in the catchment area of ​​the Rishiganga River. Immediately thereafter, a team of SDRF went to conduct an survey where they found that the water is draining from the lake into the river, so that there is no possibility of immediate danger. Despite this, the SDRF has deployed its troops from the lake to Raini and Tapovan to monitor the flow of sageganga. Commandant Navneet Bhullar, who led the SDRF team on the spot, said that our soldiers are posted along the river, who will constantly monitor the river’s water flow. Apart from this, sensors have also been installed at different places to monitor the river waterflow under the early warning system. In this regard, Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat also said that the lake is also being monitored through satellite. NTPC’s under-construction 520 MW Tapovan-Vishnugad hydroelectric project was severely damaged by the severe floods in the Rishiganga river in Chamoli district on February 7, while the 13.2 MW Rishiganga hydroelectric project at Rani was completely destroyed.
