Construction of Metn's Beqaatet Kanaan dam southwest of Faqra has resulted in the complete burial of a northern section of the Nahr al-Kalb River, which could pose serious hazards in the future, environmentalists said Friday.The river is currently dry, Abi Rached said.Beqaatet Kanaan Mayor Samih Khazan denied that any part of the river had been buried under sediment. Instead, he called local media reports "fake news," inviting the public to see the river for themselves.While it is unclear when the northern section of the Nahr al-Kalb was completely buried under sediment, the magnitude of the job suggests the process took place over several months.
