Endosulfan detected along Kavvai river banks

Kozhikode: Kavvai river originating from Chemmeni hills, Kasargod meanders through thickly populated areas for 31 kms before reaching Payyanur. CWRDM studied the sediment and deposits along the banks. Head of Water Quality Division Dr. Harikumar P S says that endosulfan was detected in some sediment samples and in the soil, though not in the water. The pesticide, which was sprayed in PCK estates in Cheemni must have been washed down into the river through rainwater. The population has no cause for worry as the presence of endosulfan is reducing with time. But the contention of the government that contamination was confined to 11 villages now sounds hilarious.
