Why they selected Chaliyar River?

Chaliyar stream or Beypore puzha is that the fourth longest stream in Kerala with a length of 169 kilometre. The speciality of this stream is that it doesn’t get dried up within the drought season. The stream was extensively used for business functions within the 19th-20th century. It originates from the Western Ghats vary at Elambalari Hills within the Wayanad upland. From there, it flows through Malappuram, Kozhikode and it joins into the Lakshadweep ocean.

Chaliyar stream has its own economical significance too, throughout the nineteenth -20th century, this stream was extensively accustomed trade timbers. this can be the sole waterway for carrying timber from the forest areas, that created Calicut together of the foremost necessary timber business centres within the world.

Yearly within the sixties the full stream turned as a malodorous pool of dirty and achromatic water. that is very impure with chemical effluents and unsafe material like mercury. As result the full water body became poison which took the lives of many individuals within the villages around it. It’s all attributable to a manufacturing plant that is closely-held by a number one cluster in Asian nation. As per one survey the Kerala government found that there have been 245 cancer patients within the village, finally within the 2000 they shut their manufacturing plant unit and therefore the four decades of relentless struggle came to associate finish.

Then ahead the lifetime of the stream started returning to traditional. The banks of the stream area unit currently turning into a traveller spot with resorts and with many pleasure water travel yards giving a brand new life and financial gain to the individuals in these villages.
