Spate Along the Gori River Basin, NE Kumaon
Relief and Rehabilitation
on the spate along the Gori river basin,North Eastern Kumaon, Uttarakhand

While this could be a longer-term river flood-pulse, it is clear that the erosive force was multiplied by the sediment load and the masses of boulders and debris that flowed down. Two factors seem to have exacerbated this. One, very heavy commercial sand mining along the riverbanks, leaving them bare and without a cushion, and two, the enormous amount of debris that has been dumped along the riverbanks from road-building (for hydro companies) and from tunneling and dumping of muck during the construction of tunnels for hydropower projects.
