However, does it still bask in the glory of its former allure?
The answer is NO. Post the implementation of the Riverfront Development Project, the waters of the river have become tainted with vast amounts of untreated sewage and industrial effluents being dumped into the Vasna Barrage, downstream of the project.
The quality of the river water has dilipidated to extreme lows in the recent past.
We at Drishti Foundation Trust, have adopted the Vasna Barrage, in association with the Government of Gujarat to work towards the metamorphosis of the Barrage into a 'Green Belt'.
We will be planting around 500 trees (Banyan, Peepal and other Fruit Trees) to provide shelter for the Birds near the river and also maintaing the same, for the coming 5 years.
We would encourage your contributions towards this initiative and urge you to donate wholeheartedly.
It is time for us to restore back to mother nature, whatever we take from her.
