Bindal River

Bindal River (also Bindal Rao) flows through Dehradun in Uttarakhand, India, and is fed by a number of springs at the base of Mussoorie ridge.[1]

Due to unchecked development around the river and encroachment at many places, the river water has been contaminated with hazardous pollutants and chemicals.[2] In 2019, the government of Uttarakhand initiated a plan to revive the water body.[3]
