Yamunaji river has to be saved!
Many attempts have been made in Vrindavan to counteract the effects of the changes of course of the Yamunaji river after the monsoons. Many efforts have also been made to clean up the garbage coming from the town of Vrindavan into the Yamunaji river. We have installed grills in the outlets of the black waters. Unfortunally the sewage had been pour into the Yamuna. These grills are meant to withheld the most of the solid waste from entering the river. This could be a good solution but it works only when there aren’t high floods.
Running projects, other tries
Cleaning project along the river bank in the Vrindavan area works all the way up to the Samadhi of Devraha Baba. This project is conducted by Helping Hands for Vrindavan and other volunteers. Chandi Heffner together with Mr. Gill and some of the volunteers form Vrindavan Braj and Vrindavan Heritage have made great efforts. To bring the Yamuna back to the Keshi Ghat they have placed a large amount of sand bags to the riverside.
The project was initially successful. Sand bags are not heavy enough. Unfortunatelly this wall created from bags was destroyed by the monsoon floods. With some implemented engineering measures we could help this river. The Yamunaji River has to run properly in front of Kesi Ghat without the black waters of Vrindavan pouring into the river.

Black water isn’t the only problem in with the Yamunaji river. There’s need not just for engineers help. We need physical help too for taking the cement pillars sticked out of the Yamuna. This is necessary because pillars are blocking the Vrindavan front from the Yamuna. This way the water drives away from Vrindavan. To solve this problem we try to involve some business enterprises to help us out. They could help us with some bigger machines for taking these pillars out.
