Abstract

River Ganga is a lifeline to entire Indo-Gangetic Plain in India that flows through four states, emerging from the Himalayas and ultimately flows into Bay of Bengal covering a stretch of 2,525 km through four states. It is not only a perennial source of water but the river is imbibed in the socio-cultural fabric of India. There are many festivals and rituals in which idols are worshipped and later immersed into rivers like. These idols are mostly cast in clays but a few made of plaster of Paris. The application of synthetic paints and decoration is given to symbolize God or Goddess. The contact of synthetic paints with water contaminates and deteriorates the quality of water in all cases. Hence to facilitate devotees and simultaneously maintaining river water life, temporary immersion pond is constructed in the proximity of the river. This paper examines the water quality of temporary water pool created near river Ganga as part of River Front Development Project, after immersion and compared with water quality at the bank and also the mid-stream of Ganga.
