Source: The Times of India, Date: November , 2014

The Western Coalfields Limited (WCL) is allegedly releasing untreated, highly contaminated water from two open cast coal mines into Vidarbha's second biggest river — Wardha.

WCL, however, denies any pollution, claiming all the water is treated before being released into the river.
