    Preparation of Ganga River Basin Management Plan
    by
    Coordinator:
    Dr Vinod Tare, Professor
    Environmental Engineering and Management Programme
    Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur
    KANPUR - INDIA
  • Challenge
    Protecting the river system
    • Un-polluted Flow ( )
    • Longitudinal, lateral and vertical connectivity
    • Adequate space for various river functions
    • Ecological entity
    • Continuously flow ( )
    Adequate provision for soil, water and energy
    Growing population, urbanization,
    industrialization and agriculture
  • Our Philosophy
    Can not afford to Experiment with River Like Ganga!
    Precautionary Principles must apply wherever knowledge gaps and uncertainties exist
    Apply modern science and new technologies but with traditional wisdom
    GyanDhara + Jana Gyan
    Supportive Capacityand Assimilative Capacity
  • Scope
    Maintain
    Adequate flow and Appropriate Quality in the River
    Water Resources Planning at the Basin Level
    Influence of Agriculture, Industrialization, Urbanization, etc.
  • Our Approach
    FGM
    WRM
    Water Resource Management
    ENB
    NATIONAL RIVER
    River with unique Ecosystem and Biodiversity
    Gangotri
    Environmental Quality and Pollution
    Ganga Sagar
    EQP
    SEC
    Socio-Cultural Heritage
    Geomorphological Changes: Erosion, Sediment Transport/Deposition And Floods
    PLG

    GDM
  • Fluvial Geomorphology
  • Trajectories
    of change
    Intact
    Turning point
    Restored
    Degraded
    Created
  • The Mantra:
    Thirteen actions are prohibited on approaching the scared waters of the Ganga, namely:
    • Defecation
    • Ablutions
    • Discharge of wastewater
    • Throwing of used floral offerings
    • Rubbing of filth
    • Body shampooing

    • Offering of inappropriate praises or even hymns in a incorrect way
    • Discarding of garments
    • Beating and
    • Swimming across, in particular
  • GRBMP – Some Issues
    Annual Water Availability (Present and future including climate change scenarios) V/S Water Demand (Present and Future)
    Adequate Storage – On the River, Off the River Ponds/Reservoirs/Ground Water Recharge
    Supportive Capacity
    E Flow Only in the River, at least up to Varanasi
    Dilution is not the solution to pollution
    Point Sources to be completely eliminated and Catchment Protection Strategy to Control Diffused Pollution/Non Point Pollution
    Demand Management –
    Agriculture/Industrial/Domestic
    GAP – Issues  Technology but PLG!
    Local Bodies – Low priority for Waste Management!
    River Pollution Control Authority
    Engagement with Stakeholders - Transparency
