Massive deforestation along the Williamnagar - Tura road drying streams

Williamnagar, March 10: The picturesque hills of the Williamnagar – Tura highway has recently been ravaged by the massive deforestation that the area is undergoing. Complete hills have been defaced or are about to be and the effect this has had on the local environment is not very hard to gauge. The once water rich streams have now either come down to a trickle or have completely dried up.

If the same practice continues, the water woes of these two towns will increase manifold, with the present scenario not that great anyway.
