`Periyar water quality has improved'

KOCHI, MARCH 17. The Local Area Environment Committee (LAEC) has found that there has been visible improvement in the quality of water in the Periyar over the last few months.

The LAEC made this observation at its meeting held here today. Life in the river has been restored. Fish population has increased and people have started fishing in the river, a press release issued by the committee said.

The Environment Committee pointed out that industries in Eloor and Edayar had realised that preventive environmental management and integrated chemicals management leading to zero discharge can sustain them in the field.
