Shillong: Locals and tourists are stunned at the sudden change of Elephant’s Fall’s colour from a distill crystal clear to something of a milk-tea shade yesterday also emitting foul smell.
Speaking to Rupang the treasurer of San Shnong Youth Welfare Organisation (SSYWO), bah Teilang Rynjah said, “The source is from Lum Shillong flowing down via Lumdiengjri, crossing Airforce area then to Umdiengpun and to Elephant’s Fall. But we cannot ascertain that it is the Airfore which divulged its waste.” He further said that this is not the first time. it has occurred in the past. On inquiry he said, the root cause was the waste that comes from the cowshed of the Veterinary whose director apologized and promised that such will not happen again. However, on this case he said, “it could be due to land felling or other reason and a joint inspection will have to be conducted to know the root cause”.
