Sand mining in world rivers (FINAL)LC

2018-9-23  WWF is a solution-oriented advocate of clean flowing rivers that believes that by better understanding and communicating the impacts of sand mining – aggregate extraction encompasses sand, gravel, pebbles or cobbles, but is collectively referred to as sand mining – on rivers, the organisation can influence key decision-makers to ensure that extraction is done sustainably. To do this, a strong evidence base for past, current and potential impacts of sand mining on rivers

Sand mining is stealing the minerals from Chinese rivers

2021-2-11  Unsustainable sand mining transforms the structure of rivers. By removing more than the river can naturally replace with the sediment it carries downstream, sand mining carves a deeper, narrower bed. This lowers the water level, speeds up flow and erodes banks – reducing the watershed’s capacity to absorb excess water during floods.
