Recently releasing the order from Ghaziabad District Magistrate, Ms. Ritu Maheshwari said “There will be no discharge of effluents into the Ganga and its tributaries from grossly polluting units — distillery, sugar, pulp and paper and textile during the mela. These units drain untreated effluent and waste water in Kadrabad drain, which is connected with the Ganga."

“River Ganga enters in U.P. in District Bijnor and after passing through major districts Meerut, Hapur, Bulandshahar, Aligarh, Kanpur Allahabad, Varanasi, Balia, it goes to Bihar onwards. The main action which is required in this segment is to take action in the identified 86 drains meeting into Ganga & its tributaries and for treating the drains as per their quality, recycling the treated water and discharging rest treated water into river as per the prescribed standards and maintaining E-flow in every stretch of the Ganga & its tributaries.” Say CPCB report
