New Delhi: CSE is conducting a profile of the Water Quality of the holy river, Ganga. The river Ganga covers almost five states: namely Uttrakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Bihar and West Bengal. During its journey, it runs through almost 29 cities, 70 towns and thousands of villages – a 2,525 km journey from Gangotri to Ganga Sagar (Bay of Bengal).
The profiling will be done in collaboration with educational institutes situated within the river basin stretch, and interested in the field work. To accomplish this task, CSE invites College/Institution/University to register for the project before August 12, 2016. Students of the selected institutions will be engaged in collection of water sample and analysis of the water quality. To participate in the monitoring project, you will need to register your College/Institution/University by using the form (http://goo.gl/forms/hQEbBC1t5KmY0Xqm2). This study will be first of its kind in the country led by CSE and their partner.
Certificate of participation and honorarium will be given to the College/Institution/University who successfully submits the information required by CSE within the timelines.
