Reliance Power ash dyke breaches in Singrauli

For the third time in eight months, Madhya Pradesh’s Singrauli district suffered a breach in one of its ash dykes. Late evening on Friday, April 10, a wall in an ash dyke belonging to Reliance Power’s Sasan Power Plant gave way and inundated six nearby villages with toxic ash slurry. While a search is on for six missing persons who are feared to have been swept away, initial eye-witness reports claim massive damage to houses and agricultural fields in the vicinity.
