Water Pollution in River Ganga

Gajanan Pratapwar


Abstract: Water pollution may be defined as the presence of one or more contaminants or combinations thereof in such quantities and of such durations in the water tend to be injurious to human, animal or plant life, (aquatic life) or property, or which unreasonably interferes with the comfortable enjoyment of life or property. In easier words, it is the contamination of water bodies like lakes, rivers, ponds, seas, oceans and even groundwater. This is due to discharge of environmental pollutants or effluents into water bodies without treatment. Water pollution affects the entire biosphere, including not only the individual species but also their natural biological communities. It results in the death of much of the aquatic life residing inside the contaminated water body. It also leads to various diseases like cholera, dysentery, diarrhea, malaria, dengue, chickingunia, etc. and even fatal in some cases if that water is consumed without treatment
