Abstract :

The present study was carried out to assess the impact of mass bathing on water quality of Ganga River during Maha Kumbh-2010. Ganga water samples were collected from three selected bathing Ghats / Platforms of river Ganga and analyzed for some Physico-Chemical parameters. It was observed that all parameters were least affected at the Ghat / platform of Sapt Rishi Ashram, which is the least used for bathing by pilgrims and remains least disturbed zone among three sites, whereas almost all parameters were highly affected at Har- ki- Pauri, the site used most by the pilgrims and hence the highest disturbed zone.
