Launch of E-flow Monitoring System Enhances Project Oversight

During the session, the focal point was the inauguration of the Environmental flows (E-flows) Monitoring System under the Aviral Ganga initiative. Integrated into the PRAYAG Portal, this system enables real-time monitoring of project planning, river water quality, and other vital parameters.

By leveraging data from the Central Water Commission's quarterly reports, the system tracks crucial metrics such as in-flow, out-flow, and mandated E-flow across 11 projects along the Ganga Main Stream. This initiative aims to improve the monitoring of Namami Gange program activities nationwide.

Commitment to Timely Completion and Innovation

Expressing his commitment to the timely completion of ongoing projects, Minister Paatil stressed innovative solutions to tackle emerging challenges. He highlighted the imperative of developing new strategies for regions lacking river rejuvenation programs, underscoring his vision for a cleaner and revitalized River Ganga.

The Minister also conducted a comprehensive review of cleaning projects integral to the Namami Gange Program. This initiative aims to preserve the uninterrupted flow and cleanliness of the River Ganga, ensuring its ecological and cultural significance are safeguarded.
