The Chindwin River preservation group arrived at Khamti town to investigate a water purification system and whether it should be used for drinking water or not.
“The preservation group will investigate a total of eight villages along the Chindwin River. Residents that live along the Chindwin River depend on the Chindwin River for drinking water. First we will study the needs and careers of the residents and we will do research concerning the needs of people in the local community” said Director of Chindwin River Preservation Group Daw Khin Ohmar Htwe.
The preservation group will study the biodiversity of the Chindwin River until 7 April.
