Govt measuring Narayani depth to asses waterway possibility

Kathmandu, June 6

The Ministry of Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation has started the first phase of checking the possibility of a waterway project in the Narayani River.

The team deployed by the Ministry is currently checking the depth of the Narayani River from Dasdhunga in Chitwan to Gandak barrage near Nepal-India border.

According to joint secretary Rishi Ram Sharma, the preliminary study will determine if the river can be used as a waterway. If the ministry senses the possibility, it will then prepare a detailed report next year.

Sharma says that the ministry has given the team one month to complete the depth measurement of the 90 km stretch.

The team has completed assessing 15 km in the past two days.

“After the preliminary study is complete, we will find out which type of ship can operate in these waters. If we want to operate big ships, we will have to build a damn,” says Anup Khanal, Managing Director of Innovative Engineering Services Pvt Ltd, which is carrying out the assessment.

“Our main aim now is to measure the depth of the river,”  he says.

The consulting firm is using a Differential GPS system and an echo sounder to measure the river’s depth. Khanal says that the system they are using is of international standard and that a correct figure would come out of it.

These system was also used during the preliminary study of Bheri Babai Diversion Multipurpose Project.
