Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority initiates Mithi River clean-up project!

The buoyant waste polluting the upper sections of Mithi River will be collected, segregated and recycled under this scheme.

In an attempt to revive the beauty of the Mithi river, a cleanliness drive has been launched by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA). Reportedly, the inaugural event took place at Bandra Kurla Complex on Friday and it was marked by the presence of Maharashtra's Environment Minister. As per reports, the pilot project will be functional in association with the Marine Debris Partnership, with an objective to improve waste management.

Floating waste to be collected with the help of a river

Reportedly, the buoyant waste polluting the upper sections of Mithi River will be collected, segregated and recycled under this scheme. Strengthening the efforts, a machine will be deployed for collecting the floating waste on the river. It is expected that this intervention would propel a hastened realisation of the set objectives.

As per reports, MMDRA will fuel the planned proposals in the capacity of a facilitator. Thereafter, it shall assess the working of the Marine Debris Partnership and results of the collaboration will also be analysed from time to time. The Environment Minister stated through his Twitter account, "This pilot project is a first-of-its-kind initiative in India and will help transform the Mithi river. Evaluating the trial run, we aim to extend this further to the other rivers in the city."

Navigating a journey from Powai Lake to Arabian Sea

Being one of the most prominent rivers in India's financial capital, the Mithi River meanders through a vast expanse of Mumbai. It spurts out from the waters of Vihar and Powai Lake and traverses through the areas lying on Mumbai's peripheries like Seepz, Marol and Andheri. After that, it goes underground, chalking its way below the runway of the International Airport. Extending its path, it passes through the regions of Bail Bazar, Kurla, Bandra-Kurla Complex and finally joins the Arabian Sea at Mahim Bay.
