The water level of the Ghaghra River is increasing day by day due to the continued rain on the hills and the water released from the barrage of Banbasa, Sharda. On Thursday, the water level of the river at the Dighiya outlet reached the danger mark. This worries people in the surrounding villages. With the rise of the river’s water level, the problems of the villagers and animals have increased.

Water has also reached near Gangepur, the village of Parasia on the bank of the river, near Mahula Garhwal Bandhe, and is moving rapidly towards the village. The villagers of villages like Aughad Ganj, Kudhi, Achal Nagar, Devara Khas Raja, Gangepur, Parasia etc. have the most problems. The Gangepur and Parasia areas can also be affected by flooding.

Construction work on the bridge connecting UP-Bihar in front of Shivpur-Nauranga on the Ganges has been suspended due to the rise in the river’s water level. Construction on this bridge began five months ago and a total of seven piers were erected during this time. A total of 19 pillars are to be built into the bridge. The construction of the bridge should be completed in three years. In 1995, the population of the village is said to have requested a bridge from the former Prime Minister Chandrashekhar. At the same time he had convinced people to build a bridge here. After his announcement, the survey began, but due to the erosion of the river, the geographic situation changed and the fall of the bridge was postponed. The foundation stone for the bridge was laid in 2016, but construction only began for two years.

The matter remained pending approval from the UP and Bihar governments. After all the problems were resolved, work began five months ago, but due to the rise in the Ganga water level, the work organization has had to stop work.

Due to the incessant rains, both the Ganges and the Saryu in the Ballia district are on the escalation side. The water level of the Ganges at Gaighat was measured on Thursday at 52.410 meters. At the same time, the water level of Saryu at the Turtipar DSP Head was measured at 63,690. The water level of the Ganges is below the danger mark of 57.615 to 5.205 meters.

At the same time, the water level of Saryu is only 32 cm below the danger mark of 64.01. Although the water of the rivers has not yet come out of the belt, people in the coastal areas have started to take safety measures after seeing the flood situation. The water level of the rivers has increased by about 11 cm in 24 hours.
