Reduced water flow
Construction of dams, passing the river through tunnels and hydropower projects on the main stream have obstructed the natural flow.
Diversion of river water & over extraction of ground water have reduced the quantity and flow of river Ganga.
Impact of reduced water flow
*Fragmentation of river
*Changes in chemical composition water and sediments
*Loss of useful minerals & nutrients
*Depletion in dissolved oxygen (DO) content
*Loss of habitats for aquatic animals
*Changes in the composition of flora & fauna
*Loss of biodiversity and microbial activities
