Strategies for overall environmental improvement have been formulated to achieve the following objectives:
Reduction in Erosion and Flood
Strategies for flood protection, bank protection, and river training have been formulated based on detailed hydrological and hydraulic analysis and an optimal width of 263 meters for the water way has been selected.
To stop the pollution of the river from untreated sewage and industrial effluents, an integrated storm water and sewage system with interceptor sewers has been implemented.
Water Retention and Recharge
As Sabarmati is not a perennial river, a comprehensive strategy to manage and maintain water in the river throughout the year has been worked out. Water retention in the river shall enable recreational activities as well as recharge the groundwater.
