〰️ The Buriganga〰️ 🇧🇩
Once the lifeline of Dhaka, the Buriganga is now one of the most polluted rivers in Bangladesh. Hazaribagh, Dhaka’s leather processing zone, is in the middle of one of the most densely populated residential neighbourhoods. About 194 leather processing industries operate here and freely dump untreated toxic wastes directly into the low-lying areas, rivers, and natural canals. The pollution is seriously affecting the lives of thousands of people, bringing the area to the brink of an environmental disaster.
Each day Dhaka dumps thousands of tons of raw sewage into its rivers and other bodies of water, making them extremely polluted for human consumption and use. Yet many poor migrants living on the outskirts of the city have little choice but to use the polluted water.
On 20th January 2020, the court ordered authorities to take immediate action against 231 garment-related factories including rubber plants, dyeing factories and tanneries that had been using the Buriganga river as the private dumping ground for their industrial waste, making Dhaka’s main river one of the world’s most polluted.
