THE Supervision Committee for Conservation of Waterways and Borderlines held its first official meeting of 2016 in Myawady, Kayin State on Thursday.
Addressing the meeting Chairman of the Committee U Lwin Ko Oo, the district administrator, outlined the aims of the committee, its responsibilities and the gravity of its work.
We need to safeguard and ensure our territorial integrity, this means preventing our territory from being eroded by river currents, he said.
We need to be organised and alert in watching whether the banks of the Thaungyin river and Gawli Creek are eroding or not and whether there are significant changes being made to the landscape by the forces of nature affecting the current of the river and the creek.
Committee members then held discussions on matters
related to the conservation of the waterways and the
prevention of erosion and other unwanted changes with a special focus on preventing changes to borderlines because of human activity in those areas.
