Save Hatirjheel

The deteriorating quality of water in Hatirjheel is quite alarming. This project was supposed to be an entertainment site for the Dhakaites. Instead, it is beginning to embrace the fate of Buriganga River with its water getting dirtier and polluted, repulsing the visitors.
The authorities concerned should identify the causes of pollution and find ways to stop it. One of the major causes of pollution is that the water gets mixed with sewage. The authorities should look into this matter as soon as possible. At the same time, they should impose fines on throwing waste and directing sewage in the water. A task force should be created to maintain the lakes in Dhaka city.
