DEMOW, April 24: After the incessant rain since the last one week, the water level of different rivers of Assam has been increased rapidly.

In Sivasagar district under Demow Circle Office, Nitai Mouza at Sessamukh Tili, the water level of Dehing River has increased rapidly due to which the people of the area are facing serious problems. Due to the erosion, the river embankment is in a poor condition.

In the meantime, the water resource department has made bamboo porcupines on the banks of the Dehing River to check erosion at Sessamukh near Demow. Due to the increase of water level, some of the porcupines have submerged in water and farmers of Nitai, Panidehing and Thowra mouza are in dire straits.

ndita Roy Gohain, Demow Circle Officer, visited the flood-affected area and took stock of the situation. The people of Nitai Mouza said that they had met Virendra Mittal, Deputy Commissioner of Sivasagar, and informed him about the poor condition of Sessamukh Dehing embankment.
