The visiting site De River is located 5 kilometers away from Lunglei town. It flows to the western side merged to form khawthlangtuipui. Many rivers in Mizoram turned into garbage dump. De River too is slowly being polluted by plastic waste. Although local village council has allocated designated place for dumping, dumping on the river bank continue. In urban areas, trash and litter often are transported by storm water runoff. Due to a lack of awareness and inadequate facilities people dispose untreated wastes on the bank of the river and sometimes directly into the river. Regardless of source or type, trash is a form of water pollution. Discharge of wastes has many serious effects on water quality including aquatic ecology.
Awareness among tourists, students and locals about the dangers of plastic pollution on the riverbank is an urgent issue. With this in mind, the department of history organized collection of plastic and waste materials from the De River and sent it to proper disposal area. A cleanliness drive was followed by a dinner party specially prepared by student volunteers.
