JORHAT, Oct 15 - Professor Prashanta Kumar Bordoloi of Civil Engineering Department of a private university here recently said at a press conference that their Department was going to set up a core group namely as �soft engineering technology group for river management of alluvial river� to provide technical inputs for erosion management projects and for capacity development of non-governmental organisations and professional engineers of erosion management projects.

He said that formation of a sandbar was observed through high resolution satellite image and compass survey at erosion-hit Jhanjimukh area by heavy siltation after the floods of 2010. He also claimed that he had inspired the victims of erosion in Jhanjimukh area �for greening the newly-formed sand bar that linked a marooned village with the mainland with vegetation�.

As the reeds like nol, khagori, birina and many other plants, including Jhaobon, helped in siltation by thwarting the surging velocity of water, Professor Bordoloi suggested that land areas can be protected from erosion by adopting soft engineering technology.
