Water Pollution

photo series iron factories - Chhattisgarh, Raigarh District

 The local river is blocked by a dam. This pipe brings the water to the iron factories.

 The animals in the wild life park die because there is no drinking water.

 Even the young ones.

 The dirty water is collected in ponds. What will be done with the sludge?

 The water of the local streams are severely polluted...

 ...and the farmers fields too. It impossible now to grow paddy here.

 The tribals cannot fish here any longer.


 Preparations for another dam in the same district.
