JMC in action to clean water lettuce engulfing a portion of Dravyavati river

Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) has launched a cleanliness campaign to curtail the fast-spreading weed.

A portion of Dravyavati near Ambabari in Jaipur has suffered an onslaught by pistia stratiotes, also called jalkumbhi or water lettuce. The weed is engulfing the portion of the river from all directions at great speed. In a bid to clean the river, Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) has launched a cleanliness campaign to curtail the fast-spreading weed. Sewerage discharge and stinking water can be considered as the major cause for overspread of the weed. Around five years ago, Anansagar Lake was also attacked by this jalkumbhi. The administration worked very hard to remove the weeds but they have returned this season too. However, it wouldn’t have such grave consequences, due to the consistent flow of water in the river.
