Toxics of textile mills create health crisis for local residents

Yarn dyeing and processing mills of Belkuchi Upazila are causing various health problems to the people. As contaminated water which comes out of mills gets merged with ponds and underground water, is consumed by the villagers.

More than 100 mills have no drainage system and treatment plants to take care of the harmful substances which are released during the process. The yarn dyeing and processing units are set up in villages like Tamai, Shohagpur, Garamashi, Chala, Chandangati and Mukundagati, without the permission from relevant authorities.

Poisonous chemicals like sulphuric acid, acetic acid, hydrogen-per oxides, caustic soda, bleaching powder, silicate, glace and colours are used in processing mills to treat threads and cotton.

Even, the atmosphere near such units has become gravely dirty and unhygienic, as the water remains stagnant as there is no proper drainage system.

The people of Belkuchi upazila of Sirajganj district are getting affected with skin diseases, eye infection and nausea due to use of impure water, as there is a severe crisis of pure and clean drinking water.
