Dams cannot stop sea salinity

The dam built years ago in the coastal villages of Sutrapada in Girsomanath has now become a headache. This dam, built to prevent sea salinity and store fresh water, cannot stop sea salinity today. Because of that FarmersThe fertile soil of is being destroyed. The farmers are only demanding that the gates be put back in the dam.

Farmers in the coastal areas of Gir Somnath district have gone on strike, and the reason is that the dam was built only for the benefit of the farmers. About 30 years ago, a dam was constructed by the District Salt Control Department near Vadodara Jhala village in Sutrapada to prevent sea salinity and raise the fresh water table, the main objective of which was to prevent sea salinity and store fresh water. But this dam is now creating trouble for the farmers of the surrounding villages. The reason behind this is the cement wall erected by the system in place of the door.

Ever since the gates of this 30-year-old dam were broken, the system has erected a cement wall in place of the gates. The situation is that the rain water does not go into the dam. Brackish water cannot be stopped and due to this the problem is increasing day by day. Cultivable land has lost its fertility. Farmers are protesting against this and demanding that the wall should be demolished immediately and gates should be put in the dam.


When the salt control department official was asked about this, he admitted that the farmers have made applications to put gates in the dam. However, the administration says that instead of doors, the administration is considering an alternative arrangement. The official said that the canal proposal has been sent to the government as part of an alternative arrangement.
