Pollution and Over Population in the Ganges River
Transcript of Pollution and Over Population in the Ganges River
The Ganges river is used for bathing, drinking, cooking water, transportation and more. This picture shows the people of New Dehli bathing and getting their drinking water.
Occasional storms drenched the area and winds blew leaves into the water. New Dehli grew on the banks of the Ganges river. Workers cleared lands for houses and businesses, and the rain washed loose soil from construction sites into the river.
Settlers grew crops right next to the banks of the Ganges river, so when it would rain the fertilizer would wash into the river and become very harmful.
Some farmers even had farm animals and when it rained it would wash the manuare in the water.
Coal mines were dug and when it rained the water soaked into the piles of waste and scraps, this made the water acidic. Then that water would trickle into the Ganges river and make it very harmful.
