Sunita Narain, director general, Centre for Science and Environment, who was also on board the National Ganga River Basin Authority, suggests in her recent assessment the steps the new government must take: in the upper reaches, ensure a 30 per cent ecological flow of the rivers in the lean season; in the plains, either clean the wastewater to the levels that it can be released directly into the river or add more water to dilute the pollution levels; take the sewage from the existing drains to the treatment plants instead of building new sewer lines; and reuse the treated effluent for irrigation.
She has been saying this for a while: don't mix the treated wastewater with the untreated waste, as it continues to happen in many places. Her exasperation with the system shows when she says: "Or just plug all the nallahs emptying into the river and let the cities deal with their sewage.
