Ganga cleanup action plan

  1. 1. Ganga Cleanup Action Plan Proposal
  2. 2. Any successful Ganga cleanup plan requires a multi thronged approach. A local micro level handling and an elaborate plan that applies to the whole course at a macro level. Presenting a brief outline of Ganga Clean up Action Plan, steps which I feel need to be taken to realize this mega goal…
  3. 3. Every major city eg: Varanasi, Hardwar, Allahabad & Kanpur has its individual problems, which need to be handled at the respective city level. • Proper sewage disposal to ensure that the river is not contaminated by the city waste & sewage • Water treatment plants to ensure no amount of untreated water is released in the river • Proper monitoring of industries along the bank to ensure, polluted water with harmful chemicals is not discharged in the river • Half cremated bodies should not be released in the river. Electric or improved wood crematorium should be used. • Proper sanitary facilities provided in places with high domestic & tourist traffic City-wise pollution control measures:
  4. 4. • Strict laws & penalties for industries, municipalities & individuals who are found breaking law or polluting the river in any way • Polluting units should be closed or shifted [special mention-Tanneries in Kanpur] • Regular monitoring of pollution level at various points along the course of the river Zero tolerance to pollution :
  5. 5. • Low cost Water treatment plants and sewage treatment plants to be constructed along the bank to ensure no untreated water goes in Ganga • The river bank should be lined with plants especially the ones that help in reducing pollution • Buffer zone should be created along the course of the river Water treatment & rejuvenation:
  6. 6. Maintaining proper flow: • 100 km stretch of Gaumukh – Uttarkashi declared as eco-sensitive zone. No mega hydro projects should be allowed here. • Too many Hydro projects act as speed breakers and reduce the natural flow of the river. Monitoring indiscriminate number of dams is required. • Minimum flow should be fixed and regularly monitored
  7. 7. Awareness drive: • Media channels should be used to create awareness about the campaign • School & college students should be involved in the campaign along with NCC volunteers to help spread awareness amongst pilgrims about pollution and cleanliness • Seers and NGOs should also be included in the awareness campaign to guide the general public.
  8. 8. All of us are aware that this is a mammoth task, which will require earnest efforts from all concerned. We also know that a committed Central and state governments only have the power to take the necessary steps to clean the holy Ganges. All the best…
