Pancheshwar dam vulnerable to earthquakes in current form, finds study

Updated : June 13, 2019 11:49 PM IST

India has been actively pursuing the proposed 5,040-megawatt Pancheshwar dam project on the India-Nepal border despite objections to the large-scale project in the geologically sensitive Himalayan area.
A latest study published by a team of Indian researchers has cautioned that if executed in its present format, the project would face a serious risk from seismic activity and sediment mobilisation.
The researchers also note that the project will be vulnerable to extreme weather events and shrinking glaciers in the Himalayan region.
