TOI reported ‘Worsening of Ganga Water Quality’ but didn’t elaborate on causes.
Ganga Basin has Multiple Problems – first 25mhecta area is IMPACTED by Floods, there is no DAM STORAGE in so many River Sub-Basins, post monsoon most of the water is diverted for Irrigation, Potable Water Supply to over 200m Population, ground water extraction – there is very little water Flowing in Gaga River.
In last 5 years Ground Water Extraction has increased – Human Population has increased by around 10%, Animal Population due to Cattle Protection has increased by 25% to 30% [Figures Not Available] – Ground water Extraction increased by say 30% due to increase in Power Supply in 5 Years.
Instead of Small Scale SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANTS in each habitation – PIT LATRINES mostly dry didn’t RECYCLE SEWAGE – Sewage & Dung production increased Substantially so there is WORSENING of Ganga Pollution.
