Unscientific opencast coal mining in the Kopili's upper reaches in Meghalaya has led to acidification of the river which has in turn left part of the river's course biologically dead, making the water unfit for human consumption and has led to frequent outages at the Kopili Hydro Electric Project's power stations.
Kopili Hydro Electric Project is a 275 MW, hydroelectric power project on the Kopili river and its tributary, Umrong stream.
