WCL ‘poisoning’ Wardha river, allege green activists
Source: The Times of India, Date: , 2014
Coalfields Limited (WCL) is allegedly releasing untreated, highly contaminated
water from two open cast coal mines into Vidarbha's second biggest river —
Wardha. The alarming level of pollution can be gauged from the colour of the
water in the big river. The surface layer of the river has turned yellowish and
blackish at spots where the polluted water is being released into the river.
WCL, however, denies any pollution, claiming all the water is treated before
being released into the river.
