However, the water levels of the Dharla and Teesta rivers remain steady, despite the relentless increase of the Brahmaputra’s water level.

The water level of Brahmaputra river is on the rise, again, due to waters flowing upstream from  Kurigram. 

According to data from the control room of the district’s Water Development Board, the water level of the Brahmaputra has increased by 12 centimeters at the Chilmari and Nunkhawa points in the past 48 hours, measured at 6am, Tuesday. 

However, the water levels of the Dharla and Teesta rivers remain steady, despite the relentless increase of the Brahmaputra’s water level.

Sources from the Water Development Board have ensured that there is a low probability of flooding in Kurigram, at the moment.

Kurigram Water Development Board Executive Engineer MD Shafiqul Islam told the Dhaka Tribune: “Upstream flow has caused the water levels of the Brahmaputra to go up, but presently it remains at a normal level.”

Quoting a recent flood forecast report, he added: “Available data suggests that there is no immediate possibility of floods in this district.”
