Sand is an essential part of our river ecosystem - protect it.Illegal sand-quarrying has led to serious consequences and river sand is now becoming a rarity. The river sand is much better for construction purposes than any other sand used for construction and is one of the most used resources in the world.
It can undoubtedly be said that sand is an essential part of the river's ecosystem. Like the river's water flow and fishes, it helps the rivers to stay healthy. It is very important for the recharge of groundwater and supplies the nutrients in the runoff water. Sand helps in maintaining the flow of water during the days of lack of water flow in rivers.
The carelessness with which people have exploited natural resources makes it very clear that we have not spared anything in the name of development. Whether it is coal or natural gas or mineral oil, and if this happens further, soon we may have to face a lack of sand.
