At present the Haora River is in vulnerable condition. Activities like deforestation, uncontrolled lifting of water and sediment, unscientific soil collection from the agricultural land, unscientific construction of bridges and causeways, etc., should be immediately controlled to save the Haora River. New strategies and planning like adaptation of BEVZ technique, proper bank management planning and management planning for waste brick materials, industrial and domestic materials, etc., should be adopted for checking further degradation of the river. Last but not the least, mass awareness programmes should be organised to acclimatise in the slum areas about using proper sanitary system. More Sulabh (government-sponsored toilet and latrine) should be distributed among the slum dwellers in order to reduce the use of Kachha latrine.
The entire river basin starting from its origin in Baramura hill is affected by different kinds of human interventions. Several different activities are performed by the common people as well as from government section by which the river is moving towards its dying phase. Construction of road and bridge piers on/within the riverbed, motor stands along the river bank (by filling the valley side areas) and outlets of municipal garbage with the river without any treatment plant are some examples of such hindrances. This is the high time to consider about this alarming degradation of the Haora River. It may also create instability to the geohydrological environment and integrate several hazards over the area.
