To get more accurate and thorough details about the water quality of the Chindwin River, which flows through the Sagaing Region, research will be continued one more year, said Dr Win Maung, chairperson of Myanmar Environment Institute (MEI).

"Deforestation occurs in the watershed areas at the upper part of the Chindwin River. There is jade or gold mining and sand digging at the upper reaches of the Uru River, a tributary of the Chindwin River. That's why the water in the Chindwin River is muddy and more sedimentation occurred. Heavy metals might be in the water as well, so we need to continue our research on the water quality in the river," he said.
MEI began researching the Chindwin River's water quality in 2015, and planned to submit a report over the findings that go up to 2017 to the Sagaing Regional government in early 2018.
