Thane: Stay on dam work on Kalu river vacated

January 14, 2020

MUMBAI: The Bombay high court on Monday said work on the construction of a dam on Kalu river in Thane district can resume and vacated a 2012 stay.

In March 2012, the high court had stayed work on the dam observing that necessary permissions were not obtained from the Union ministry of environment and forests (MoEF) by the Maharashtra government.

A division bench on Monday said work on the dam can commence after requisite environment clearances are taken. The bench noted that the dam was important as it aims to provide drinking water to Mumbai, Thane and other districts. The court was hearing a petition filed by an NGO alleging non-compliance with rules and procedure before construction of the dam.
