Ganga Has Clean Water Only In Haridwar Out Of 39 Locations Identified For Cleaning, Says Govt Panel Report

While crores of rupees have been spent on the years to clean river Ganges, the efforts remain little on ground. The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has said in its latest study that only one out of 39 locations through which the Ganga river flows had clean water in the post-monsoon period this year.

As many as 37 of the 41 locations through which the Ganga river flows reported moderate to severe water pollution in the pre-monsoon period this year, according to the ‘Biological Water Quality Assessment of the River Ganga (2017-18)’ report that was recently made public by the CPCB in compliance with a Supreme Court direction.
