Water quality of the river Ganga at Phaphamau (Allahabad): Effect of mass bathing during Mahakumbh


, : Water quality of the river Ganga at Phaphamau (Allahabad): Effect of mass bathing during Mahakumbh. Environmental Toxicology and Water Quality 11(1): 1-5

An examination of the water quality of the river Ganga at Phaphamau (Allahabad) was carried out at the Mahakumbh festival in 1989. Water samples were collected from three sampling points one day before the festival and one day after. Analysis was carried out for physicochemical and bacteriological parameters. The biological oxygen demand, chemical oxygen demand, and fecal coliforms were all elevated during bathing.
