Tonnes of sludge lies between cemented banks of Dravyavati riverfront as it nears the inauguration.  Monsoon showers have flushed away several mud anicates dams built along the riverfront and left behind large amounts of sludge when the water receded.

Shedhi canal repairs still on, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation to supply bore well water 11.7.2018 DNA: India
Starting this summer, the city stopped receiving a 200 MLD water supply from Shedhi canal. There was reportedly a breach in the canal, and due to the ongoing repair work, water supply can only be resumed by June end. To compensate for this water shortage, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) continued acquiring water from bore wells. For one more month, the AMC will have to resort to groundwater for supplies. For this, the civic body is going to fetch water for 12 hours continuously. "Supply from the Shedhi canal has been delayed further by a month. So we have to depend on water from bore wells for that month. Shedhi canal is the main source of water for the Raska water treatment plant. From Raska treatment plant, AMC gets 250 MLD water," said a senior civic body official. "Constant use of groundwater has pushed the water level down from 15 feet to 18 feet. Due to delay in the onset of monsoons, the situation is likely to get worse if we continue extracting groundwater," said a civic official. In ...
