Then and now- Teesta Lo dam (27th Mile), Kalimpong
After torrential rains in the last week of Jul2007 the NHPC Lo dam project at 27th mile went under water at around 3 AM (slides 1 and 2). I had gone there with a group of friends later the same after noon.
As the photos reveal, there has been a dramatic change since then and much progress seems to have been made in reconstructing the dam (slides 1a and2a). Where I have my doubt is in slide3..this is the area directly above the dam site on the road from to Rangli- Rangliot and Takdah. I hope the reconstruction of that and other areas which have been impacted by the dam construction is also as speedy.
