Nepal: Triyuga River’s flood renders many landless every year

A master strategy has been formulated to control the flooding problem in the Triyuga River. Although the government promised to immediately begin the project by allocating budget, nothing has been done till now.


The government has moved ahead with the preparation of Detailed Project Report (DPR) through a project named Triyuga River Training Works for formulating a flood control strategy. The DPR will be based on constructing embankments on either side of the Triyuga River covering a distance of 42.5 km, along with achieving multipurpose goals concerning irrigation, electricity and drinking water supply.


This year Rs 100 million has been appropriated for the controlling of the Triyuga River, following the approval of DPR. The River Project Division Engineer Bishnu Dev Yadav said that the Triyuga River control projects have been classified as a National Project and hence the works to this end will be expedited from the upcoming year onwards. The government has set a 10-year window for the successful execution of this project.
