Anita Jha, the executive director of the Centre for Environment, Science and Environment (CESEE), a Mumbai-based non-governmental organisation that supports the mining of Himalayan minerals, said that while the water is not a threat to the ecosystem, it is not suitable for drinking.
“We cannot allow the water to be pumped through the mine because it is too salty.
But I think the situation is better with the water being released into the river,” Jha said.
“The water will be better than the mine water.”
The water is pumped by the mine through a pipeline to the river and a local source of drinking water is provided, she said.
She said that the company had assured her that the water would not be contaminated by any pollutants.
The company has been providing drinking water to villagers for some time now, and its owners said they would soon be able to begin releasing the water in the river.
The mine water was first introduced in 2012, after which villagers began to protest against the water, calling it harmful to their health.
The project, which has been in the works for decades, is owned by an unnamed group, which is seeking the approval of the Environment Ministry to export it.
However, it will be months before the ministry decides on whether or not to allow the export.
The mining company said it will work towards a long-term solution.
“Our plan is to start using the water by 2020, and we will have a water-supply facility by the end of the year,” Jho said.
Anita Chitrakar, another environmental activist, said the villagers would not accept that the mine is a threat.
“I think that the authorities have made a mistake in approving the project.
They should not have given it such a long time to start.
The water will not be a threat if it is properly treated,” she said, adding that the villagers should also be given compensation for the loss of their water.
“Achita is our motherland.
We are living here and we have been fighting for the water for generations.
We will fight to make sure that this water is used properly.”
The mine was first approved in 2014 after a lengthy process of environmental impact assessment (EIA), environmental impact report (EIR) and a consultation process.
However the process has not been completed due to the fact that the project is yet to be finalised.
However a recent report from a government committee found that the plan is on track to deliver benefits to the local community, improve health and create jobs.
According to the report, the project would be good for the environment, the local economy and tourism.
“It will be good if we see that it becomes a tourism destination and if people come and see it.
If we are happy with the way it is progressing, we can do the work ourselves and we can bring about positive changes in the village,” Chitra said.
The project is estimated to cost around Rs 6,000 crore and would include a 10-km pipeline to provide drinking water for the village.
It is also likely to benefit the local people and boost the local mining industry.
The environmental impact study for the project, completed in 2017, found that there was no risk to the environment and there was a strong environmental and social benefit to the villagers.
The report also said that villagers would benefit from the project because it would provide jobs to people who are unemployed.
The government has also asked the company to complete the project and submit the results of the EIR and EIRE report by June 1.
In a statement, the mining company, which did not respond to an email requesting comment, said it is working to develop a solution that will ensure the safety and environmental safety of the villagers in the long-haul process.
“Veritas Mineral Water has been granted a permit from the Department of Environment, Forest and Climate Change for the development of the project,” the company said.
The Ministry of Environment and Forests has also sought the company’s opinion on the proposal and its impact on the environment.
