River Excavation Is Now Easier With SIMEX Bangladesh

Rivers have a direct role not only in culture but also in the life and livelihood of our people, movement and communication, agriculture and industry, occupation, trade and commerce, formation, and expansion. That river-carrying life system is on the verge of destruction today. This is due to river filling, occupation, and pollution. If the river is liberated and the navigability is restored by dredging or excavation, the riverine life system will be saved from destruction.

Many works in rivers involve excavating stream beds and banks. Such works include stabilizing stream beds, protecting and stabilizing stream banks, diverting streams, creating channels to drain land and alleviate floods, deepening stream holes to increase the capacity of water off-takes, extracting sand and gravel, and works associated with developing infrastructures, such as bridges and pipelines.


Before independence, the length of waterways in Bangladesh was 24,000 kilometers. At present, the waterway is covered with silt and sand and is at least four thousand kilometers long. Only one-fourth of this waterway is navigable in the dry season. To protect the navigability of the river, it is necessary to dredge or excavate 60-70 lakh cubic meters of silt-sand per year. These dredges are done in special areas of the river, which has no effect on the navigability of the whole river. The silt, sand, and clay that fill the river have different uses.

Excavating can severely degrade or destroy ecosystems in rivers and wetlands so the precautionary principle should be followed. Excavating should not be allowed if it is likely to cause significant environmental harm. If the works will result in substantial benefits and minimal harm to the waterway and surrounding environment, excavating the bed and banks may be acceptable. However, the appropriate safeguards must be taken.
