No letup in pollution

Tougher law, drive could not stop polluters

Untreated excess dye of garment factories and chemical waste from pharmaceutical factories flow into the Turag river. Many factories still do not have effluent treatment plants installed or choose not to use them to cut cost. The photo was taken under Karnapara Bridge in Savar.

Despite the introduction of tougher laws and the government’s pledge of stern action against violators, most of the industries, especially those of fabrics, dyeing and tannery, continue polluting the rivers, canals and water bodies in the capital and its suburbs only to boost profit.
