High Powered Committee for Integrated Development of the Bagmati Civilisation and College of Engineering/Institute for Global Social Responsibility, Seoul National University Korea have joined hands to monitor water quality of the Bagmati River.

A team of the Korean university recently completed two-day drone monitoring of the river and returned home. Project Manager of HPCIDBC Rajesh Prasad Singh said the Korean team would come back within a month with adequate materials and drones.

“Within a month, the team will come to Nepal and begin water quality monitoring of the Bagmati River by using drones fitted with NIR camera,” Singh told The Himalayan Times, adding, “We will have detailed water quality report after the team completes its study.”

Singh said the government will have no investment in the project as the Korean team would manage everything.
