Kushalanagar, April. 17: There have been reports that the Kaveri is returning to its original form with clean water, almost cleaned up amidst the corona lockdown. Over the past few years there have been reports of water quality in the Cauvery River reaching from the 'B' to 'C'. Now it is heard that the flow is in 'A' grade quality in some centres reporting on the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board. The lockdown has helped the natural imbalance back to balance. The river water quality monitoring is carried out every month in 5 parts of the district including Bhagmandala, Napoklu, Dubare and Kushalanagar. This is attributed to the stagnation of polluted waste in urban and rural areas. The towns and villages waste background without sufficiency, go directly to the river. This is the main reason for the imbalance in the river says Karnataka State Pollution Control Board Kodagu Regional Officer G.R. Ganeshan with \"Shakti\". Retired Assistant Forest Conservator, Chinnappa says due to lack of tourists due to lockdown, the river Cauvery is cleaned up, as no one has moved to the riverbank and the wastes of industry have disappeared. It was felt that a weekly lockdown could be done to control river pollution for at least six months.
