The Gorai River Restoration Project

CEGIS was involved in a World Bank funded EIA of the Gorai River Restoration Project (GRRP) conducted for the BWDB. The impact of different flow regimes in the Gorai River and developing options for flow increase was investigated under this project. The EIA study assessed the impact of different flows taking into account different sectors, such as agriculture, fisheries and navigation. GIS and Remote Sensing was extensively used in the processing and analysis of data on environmental baseline conditions in respect of land, water, and biological and human resources in the study area. CEGIS also conducted environmental monitoring of the dredging work carried out in the Gorai River.
