Massive landslides have been reported from the Subansiri Lower Hydro-electric Project (SLHEP) at Gerukamukh in Assam’s Dhemaji district.
The natural catastrophe reported along the hills of the nearly-completed 2000 MW Subansiri power plant site at Gerukamukh have rekindled fears of a potential calamity amongst the people, residing along the downstream regions of the river in Assam’s Lakhimpur District.
Its worthy to note that a large portion of the hill at the project site fell onto the river’s diversion path on Wednesday, alarming the workers and further affecting the repair operation.
The SLHEP site in Assam, which has been affected by landslides and water spills over the past few days, has forced the National Hydro Electric Power Corporation (NHPC) and its contractors to halt operations and evacuate its workers.
A rise in water-level at of Subansiri River has already breached its right-hand bank in Ghansarai-Teliyapathar of Lakhimpur district; thereby inundating a vast area at Telahi Mauza in North Lakhimpur Revenue Circle.
