KATHMANDU: A plan is afoot to flow fresh water in the Bagmati River on the day of Mahashivaratri festival this Thursday.

The water from Melamchi that was channeled to Sundarijal will be diverted into the river.

The Ministry of Drinking Water shared a plan to flow clean water in the Bagmati where many revelers will take holy dip on the day.

Water level is gradually increasing in the holy river with the arrival of Melmachi water at Sundarijal, shared Ministry spokesperson Ramesh Neupane.

As the water of Melamchi project has been released to its supply tunnel since last February 19, it has arrived at Sundarijal last Saturday. He further said water collected in the tunnel has been released to the river.

The ministry has also made a plan to clean up the tunnel for some time after the release of water.

It will take an additional one-and-a-half month to clean up the tunnel and carry out its test, shared the Melamchi Drinking Water Development Committee.
