The Goa government is making progress in its plans to remediate around 4.7 lakh cubic metre of existing dump sites at various locations in Goa.

The Times of India has reported that the Goa government earlier conducted a drone survey to confirm the quantity of legacy waste that needs to be remediated. A tender was floated by the authorities in August and the financial bids of three eligible bidders were opened on November 8. Once the bidder is identified, remediation work will begin in December at the Sonsoddo dump which has a volume of 2.3 lakh cubic meter of legacy waste.
