This was what the panel members said as they were interacting with local people at Gogamukh after visiting the Lower Subansiri dam project at Gerukamukh. The experts were of the opinion that a small dam was feasible in the area.


They said sand structure, seismic and earthquake report allows no dam of 2000 MW capacity but have suggested a small dam. According to these experts, the dam will not contain flood as it was not a run of the river project and that the model of the mega dam for lower Subansiri had to be changed.


Notably, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has favoured big dam citing the expert panel report on effects of dams in the state.
