kpriyaIt has long been said that rivers are the lifelines of civilizations, which nurture them and are a way of their development. But when the lifeline itself is at risk, it becomes a major concern. The Ganges is one of the major rivers of India, sacred and worshiped, but still somehow neglected. The urge human urge for development through urbanization, industrialization with the obvious need of water, is simply unending. Water is needed for any industry set up, for fresh water to be utilized in manufacturing processes, and also largely to dump the wastes by dilution. Untreated dumping of wastes of all kinds has disturbed the natural ecosystem and ecology of the river and imposed health risk to all biota. The present time calls for an urgent action to be planned and implemented to save the river so that it nurtures our future generations as well. A strong, firm and promising management is required. I truly respect the concern identified and the efforts undertaken by the seven IITs in this regard, and wish to be a part of the same. I believe that the conference would be fruitful enough to all young individuals by means of vast knowledge from the experts in the field. When we want good, we must always return good also. Hoping for the best to come up for Ganga.
kumarrajeevI Rajeev Kumar, Dept. of EWM (environment and Water management) A.N College, Patna working as a UGC project fellow in a major research project entitled" Arsenic Toxicity in the food chain along the fluvial plains of Ganga river in Bihar”. I am passionate to know about Geological origin of Arsenic in the fluvial plains of Ganga River. I am also curious about accumulation of Arsenic in the food crops grown in fluvial plains of Ganga River. Ganga is our holy river and now-a-days the morphology and other aspects like Metal pollution etc. of Ganga River is changing, so in this conference a lot of researchers who they are working on Ganga rivers, they will present their research findigs,i think that findings and other aspects regarding Ganga River will be helpful for me to correlate the findings of my research project. I am also interested to know about the different mitigation options for Arsenic in the Ganga River basin. I want to enhance my knowledge through this conference about different plant species that accumulate Arsenic deposited by Ganga River. Another aspect to join this conference to know about the different soil texture deposited by Ganga River and their accumulation capacity of Arsenic. Lastly I would like to conclude that with solid knowledge and great interest to know about Ganga River will help me to join this conference.
kumud katiyarGanga Basin area, covering eleven states, floods in some part or the other are an annual feature. Due to rapid changes in the behaviour of the rivers in the Ganga basin and for other reasons, it was considered necessary to update the comprehensive water management plans for flood management of all the river systems in the Ganga basin. On account of the inadequacy of the protection works carried out so far, large scale damage due to floods often occurs. In order to effectively tackle the critical and chronic flood problems in the areas of the Ganga basin, it was considered necessary to prepare an integrated plan to manage and minimise the problems of flood, erosion and drainage and ensure its implementation in a comprehensive and coordinated manner. The management of water resources for diverse uses at the micro or local level should be done by adopting a partnership approach, involving the user communities, through community based organisations, in the various aspects of planning, design, development and management of water resources. In addition, in some areas, there should be community based flood and drought management committees to plan for and deal with these and other disaster situations. At the planning stage, decisions should be taken after according opportunity to the respective Gram Sabhas. Local bodies such as municipalities and gram panchayats should particularly be involved in the water management in the flood and drought area.
lnchitrakoot@gmail.comRecently I have completed Ph.D. degree in Chemistry entitled Study on occurrence of calcium in water bodies of Chitrakoot and its removal by adsorption. My Ph.D. Degree describe to the pollution with respect to water pollution and its management. I am working on various water quality parametrs of river Mandakini, Chitrakoot. River Mandakini is a pousily river and Known as mini Ganga in Government record. It is said as Ganga had been brought by Bhagirath, similarly Mandakini was brought by Maa Sati Anisuiya in critical situation. So it is a holy river like the Ganga. So work on physico-chemical and biological parameters, point pollution load, Lenglier index, Ryzner stability index, mass bathing impact,etc. are part of water quality parametrs of river Mandakini as monitoring programme. I have a completed a project entitle- Basin sub basin inventory of water pollution of Mandakini basin, Chitrakoot as project follow sponsored by CPCB and project run by MGCGV, Chitrakoot during 2007-08. Several research papers have been published in relation of water pollution and many confereces, seminars, symposium, etc. have also been attended. Besides some reserch work has been presented as young scientist and without young scientist programme in various conferences, seminars, etc. Recently work at Ganga monitoring programme in Allahbad dated between April 20-30, 2011 was carrid out by me with the colibaration of Dr. G.D. Agrawal, Formerly Hon. prof. of Env. Engg., IIT, Kanpur. Findings of various resrarch papers at river Mandakini Chitrakoot indicate that river water quality is deteriorating at various reaches due to various point pollution load especially drain or nallas joining to the river Mandakini. Since Chitrakoot is a holy place so mass bathing impact on river Mandakini is also deteriorating the water quality of river Mandakini day by day on occassion and non-occussion days at various sites.On the basis of above experience, I can say that this seminar is related to my carried out work with respect to water pollution. So Its seminar will be useful and helpful for my future planning river management planning as well as increasing knowledge power and skill. So I have interested to attend the National Students’ Conference On River Basin Planning seminar. If i get a chance to attend the above seminar, i will appreciate to the organisation.
m.sugandhiExpression of Interest Having lived in two different situations, one having extreme scarcity of water and other devastated because of its awfully high levels, I was well aware about the importance of river water planning even before joining IIT Guwahati to pursue my engineering dreams. After moving to IIT Guwahati two and a half year back, I had expected that there would be no water problems like the ones I had experienced in Hyderabad, Indore or Ahmadabad. But to my utter surprise, the ground water here was too risky to consume and the surface water of Brahmaputra was equally impure. For the water to be consumable, a series of purification processes were required. This brought to light the disturbing fact how the water problems in our country would only be aggravated in the next few years. In Hyderabad, I witnessed a very good example of how mismanagement of resources can lead to a magnificent river (River Musi) become a drainage canal in a span of 10 years. Most of the major rivers or maybe I can comfortable say that majority of the rivers in India are polluted to an extent that they can be classified as un-usable water systems. Every time I cross a river that is dirty with human waste or plastics or one that smells, I have an urge to do something for the cleaner rivers in India. In today’s India, water problems have been increasing at an alarming rate and until and unless we take a step in improvising the situation in not just the major but also the seasonal rivers, we as a nation would be in profound trouble. Rivers have lost their natural beauty do to untreated waste and industrial pollution being dumped into them. The problem is further escalated due to irregular behaviors of Indian industry and absence of strict norms to regulate them. We would have to keep in mind that river basin planning doesn’t only pose a purely engineering problem but also needs a wider understanding of the people, culture and traditions attached with it. In India Ganga is not just a river but holds a very important position in the culture of this great nation. If norms and regulations are set purely on the environmental cause, the beliefs and traditions of these long standing rivers would be lost. The solution for conserving the river is a challenge in itself. Keeping in mind the countless cultures of the country, the courses in Culture and Environment that I embark on in IIT as a part of my curriculum, have contributed greatly to my better understanding of the deep rooted connections between cultures in India and their relations with ecosystems. I strongly feel that this conference would facilitate me with a platform on which I can build for my future endeavors. Also the experience of sharing the same thought of cleaner and pollution free river and river basins with the best in the country would give me a boost. The motivation for creating a well planned river basin structure comes from the first hand experience of living with polluted rivers and unacceptable practices which have been going on in the country so far.

moharanaPrediction of discharge for a meandering river section S. Moharana1; and K. K. Khatua2 1, &2 are with Department of Civil Engineering, National Institute of Technology Rourkela-769008, India; e-mail shreedevimoharana@gmail.com/kkkhatua@nitrkl.ac.in Rivers and its basins are important as they fulfill many important functions, such as water supply for households, industry and agriculture, navigation, fishing, recreation, and 'living space' etc. Economic and social development and even life itself cannot be sustained without sufficient water at the right time and place. The quantity of water should be properly defined by the proper stage-discharge relationship of a river section. Accurate estimation of flow and the resistance factor in a meandering river is an important topic in river hydraulics to be investigated from a practical point of view in relation to the design, operation, and maintenance of open channels for prediction of flood, water level management, flood protection measures, navigation, and water intakes etc. Almost all the natural channels are meander. A meander, in general, is a bend in a sinuous watercourse. The channel geometry, side slope, degree of meandering, roughness and other allied parameters are so adjusted that in course of time the river does the least work in turning. The usual practice in one dimensional flow analysis is to select an appropriate value of roughness coefficient for evaluating the carrying capacity of natural channel. This value of roughness is taken as uniform for the entire surface and for all depths of flow. The resistance coefficients for meandering channels are found to vary with flow depth, aspect ratio, slope and sinuosity and are all linked to the stage-discharge relationships. Although much research has been done on Manning's n for straight channels, less works are reported concerning the roughness values for meandering channels. An experimental investigation concerning the variation of roughness coefficients for meandering channels with slope, sinuosity and geometry are presented. Using global data sets and ANFIS (Adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system), the Manning’s roughness coefficient of a meandering river section is evaluated. The results compare well with the actual data sets.
msekargeoim doing project on groundwater recharge which is the way to fill our needs for water.Today the major problem all around the world is global warming,climate variability which result in sea water intrusion along coastal areas and to high intensity of rainfal in a short time or due to failure of rainfal,water demand got increased day by day.river basin management is useful to develop our water need,mineral resources also the organisms live in water.by managing the river basin inland navigation,hydroelectric generation,avoid surplus water draining into sea,protect irigation structure like dams,reserviour,check dam etc.Large amount of water can be saved which we can use it for the summer season when there is no rainfall.by this agriculture can be developed.so productivity yield got increase which would sure increase for indin economy.river interlinking can done al over india by basin management.groundwater recharge may increased.water table will got increased River basin planing is an excellent topic which is to be discuss now.in india water is available to our need but due to improper management we not able to get water according to our need.the conference will sure helpful for my project also for me in future to continue my research in water.In my area a major river tamirabarani is flowing but due to anthropogenic activities river get polluted,groundwater level got decresed & salt water intrusion also take place.so it will be very helpful for me to get solution for these problems by attending the conference also i share the knowledge to my friends
NachiketThe paper summarizes the results of the first attempt to quantify the environmental flow requirements (environmental demand) of major river basins in India. It starts with the description of India physiography and water resources, outlining the major river basins / drainage regions and water resources related problems. It proceeds by reviewing the emerging development of environmental flow philosophy and work in India. It then critically examines the existing methodologies for desktop environmental flow assessment, which have been developed and applied elsewhere, primarily in developed countries. This analysis allows some common features and deficiencies of these methods to be identified and an alternative rapid environmental flow assessment method to be formulated. The method takes into account the limitations of available hydrological and ecological information in India at present but ensures that elements of natural flow variability are preserved in estimated output environmental flow time series, as required by contemporary hydro-ecological theories. The method is based on the use of a flow duration curve – a cumulative distribution function of monthly flow time series as a condensed measure of flow variability in a river. A flow duration curve is calculated for several levels of aquatic ecosystem protection effectively corresponding to levels of ecosystem degradation and loss of ecosystem services. This calculation is accomplished by simple shifting of the original “natural” flow duration curve along the probability axis, which ensures a double effect - overall flow reduction and loss of flow variability with the decreasing level of ecosystem protection. It is further illustrated how estimated flow duration curves can be converted into a continuous monthly time series of environmentally acceptable (for each level of protection) flow regime using a simple spatial interpolation procedure.
NachiketaThe three major river systems, namely, the Ganges, the Brahmaputra (Jamuna as called in Bangladesh) and the Meghna are common to the two countries, India and Bangladesh, an undivided one prior to 1947. Due to the excessive water flow in the monsoon months in these three rivers, which synchronise almost every year, the people of both the countries suffer from untold miseries due to the occurrence of floods almost every year. Bangladesh, being the lower riparian country, suffers maximum due to such floods causing enormous loss of lives and properties. It is interesting to note that though water is gradually becoming a scarce material globally, and its preservation and proper utilisation has become more and more important, its abundance in limited space and time has become so destructive in this part of South Asia. Therefore, harnessing of this abundant natural resource for the benefit of this region has become an absolute necessity in the present geographical scenario of the two countries.

This paper emphasises the necessity of regional co-operation between India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Bhutan and possibly China also for the water resources management through flood mitigation, food production and power development in the Ganga-Brahmaputra-Meghna basin (GMB basin) in the line of the Mekong Project of South and South-East Asia under the auspices of ECAFE (now ESCAP).

navneetHydrodynamic Modelling of River Flow The hydraulic characteristics of natural river flood plains are not well understood at present. This is due to the problems encountered in monitoring spatially distributed patterns of flow depths, velocity, turbulence characteristics etc. For designing the flood protection strategies, it is very important for river engineers to accurately predict water levels that may be expected due to any flood discharge. One of the consequences resulting from the more recently recognized hazards of climate change is the potential to increase the levels and occurrence of flooding worldwide. All this requires research on natural river flows. Meandering channel flows being highly complicated are a matter of recent and continued research. In fact, the need for a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) package for river flow hydrodynamics problems is highly increasing. In the present work computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations are carried out. The computational modeling of three dimensional flows in a meandering compound channel has been performed in this research work. The flow calculations are performed by solving 3D steady state continuity and Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes equations. The latter are based on the solution of the complete set of Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations coupled to the Volume of Fluid (VOF) method. The turbulence closure is approximated with standard-turbulence model. The model equations are solved numerically with a Fluent software package.
nehassThe river has been of supreme importance for Hinduism. This gave birth to the consolidation of tribes and the formation of large empires. Hinduism gives a special respect to this river which can be judged by the fact that almost every major Hindu ritual involves the use of holy water from the Ganges. Ganga, as a female Goddess, appears in the epic Mahabharata. She is shown as the mother of one of the most important characters of the epic, Bhishma. Ganga has been serving million people for the centuries. Its fertile soil is good for the agricultural purpose. The Aryans first settled down near the river due to its extremely fertile nature. It serves as the source of irrigation to the large area. Some of the crops that can be cultivated along the river includes rice, sesame, sugarcane, millets, wheat, potatoes, sugarcane, jute and seeds. Ganga has been the source of drinking, bathing and baptism. The river has immense commercial importance and thus affects Indian economy in many ways. The river enables transport of heavy goods by relatively cheap and cost effective means. The river is the basis of many industries like the jute industry of West Bengal and Bangladesh. All industries rely on the river as it sustains the workforce of these industries and the river also provides all the water required for many of these. The river is the lifeline of the vast Indian plains. The entire ecosystem of this land which stretches from Uttar Pradesh to West Bengal is dependant on the river. Many important species including the severely endangered Gangetic porpoise are found in the waters of the river. The forests surviving along the banks or fed by the channels and distributaries of the river are crucial for wildlife in north India. Unfortunately, in cities like Varanasi, Ganga is tortured by constant pollution. The river is also under threat form the fast melting glaciers as a result of global warming. The purification system of Ganga water is mainly due to the dissolve oxygen content which was nearly 12ppm, but now which decreases to 4-8ppm with the carriage of industrial waste and other domestic solid waste. Also the capacity of river basin is going on decreasing by the alluvial despite scoured from the upstream side which creates severe flooding at the time of rainy season. It not only affects the ecosystem, but also affects agriculture production and the historical development of the society. So, I need to know the pros and cons regarding the steps to be taken for the sake of humanity by supplying clean water in Ganga. So I am interested to attend this conference to share my knowledge with eminent scientists and engineers throughout the globe.

nupurbawa25River are the major source of water, for obtaining food, for transport,as a source of hydropower to drive machinery, for bathing and as a means of disposing of waste. It supports large biological diversity. This river flow governs the channel processes, channel processes alter the channel morphology and finally the channel morphology is highly interconnected with the habitat present in the river. Any change in the flow will affect all these interconnected parameters. In the recent years, human interference with the nature has greatly influenced the river flow which is considered as a master variable.Thus,understanding of the channel morphological dynamics provides an important tool to analyse role of external processes and environmental conditions. I have worked on the Spatial Variability in the Channel Morphology and Role of Bar Connectivity in the Yamuna River from Panipat to Delhi Region during my dissertation.I shall also be working on the Geomorphic Analysis of the Yamuna River Basin and Its Application in Stream Management as my PhD work.This will be a good platform to interact with students and professor working in the same field around the country .It will also be helpful in making me aware of the kinds of work in different departments.
Oishanee GhoshWith due respect I, Oishanee Ghosh, would like to take part in the National Students Conference on River Basin Planning (BRiP-2011) to be held at IIT Kanpur on November 4-5, 2011. Since an expression of interest is required I would try to communicate my personal intent. Having been brought up amidst farmlands in the southern part of Bengal in the district of Burdwan, a district which falls in the Indo Gangetic plains and is practically nestled between the ferocious Damodar and the Ganges distributary Hooghly and fed by the DVC canal system, I have been destined to involuntarily observe at close quarters life in a river basin. The good years when the rains are on time and no flooding and the farmers are content and also the bad ones with mud houses being washed away and standing crops rotting in flooded fields and a general atmosphere of grievance. This conference come as an opportunity to study the actual intricacies in a river basin management. An integral part of river basin management is a sound disaster management strategy specially which has a provision for the local population participation. The paper studies the disaster mitigation methods applied in the Indo Gangetic basin and discusses future strategies that can be implemented as improvement.
pamnanimamtaGanga is the holy river of India. I am proud to be born at the bank of the river ganga. Since my childhood i have been trying to know the various effects of river on society and vice-versa. Now a days the river is getting poluted and its natural flow is getting diluted by the seawage and industrial effluent. I think this will be the best opprtunity to know the current efforts to make ganga clean and to keep it as holy as it was. Though i am an bio-technologist who does really understand much about envrionmental science but still i want to explore this opportunity to learn more about bio-divercity of the ganga which will help me in pursuing a career in bioscience I am really happy to know that IITs have come forward to save the river which has a very deep routes in indian civilization and sooner should be a world heritage. As we all know that now a days ganga is getting poluted so this is a great effort. I will be very happy to be a member of the BRIP-2011 , who can actively participate in the event. Tehri Dam was constructed on Bhagirathi River, tributary of the Ganges. It's located 1.5 km downstream of Ganesh Prayag, the place where Bhilangana meets Bhagirathi. Bhagirathi is called Ganges after Devprayag. Construction of the dam in an earthquake prone area was controversial
Peeyush KumarThe demand for water has increased over the years and this has led to water scarcity in many parts of the country. During the past two decades, the water level in several parts of the India has been falling rapidly due to exorbitant increase in extraction and also due to failure of monsoons, requiring proper sustainable management of aquifer systems. Ganga River Basin Management Plan is such an initiative by the consortia of 7IITs for the management of water, land, forest and aquatic resources in a river basin context, to maximize the economic benefits and social welfare in an equitable manner without compromising the sustainability of vital ecosystems. The main objective of water resources management is to ensure the best use of available water resources. In addition to supporting life itself, this resource is used in the production of economic goods and services that are needed to meet national and regional development goals. Planning projects are often needed to determine how best to develop and manage these resources. It is obviously an exciting time to be part of such a unique student conference on river basin planning which not only have national importance but will also provide me the platform to discuss, participate & enrich my knowledge about river basin planning. This conference will present me the opportunities not only to discuss with & learn from the eminent people from engineering & technology background but will also help me to get an insight from medical, humanities, law & social science perspective. Having worked on Ganga River Basin Management Plan as a summer research intern, it is a great opportunity & national platform to present my work before the leading personalities of the field & get their feedback to improve the same.
poulomi chakravartyI am Poulomi Chakravarty a final year student of Department of Environment and Water Management in A.N.College, Patna, Bihar. I am doing an internship project on “Effects of Silica-Potash on Paddy Plants”. I am a resident of Patna which is based on the bank of river Ganga; therefore, ‘River Basin Planning’ is necessary for the development not only of my hometown but the whole country. Being a student of Environment it is our duty to keep the rivers of our country to be clean and pure so that they can fulfill the needs of all the people who depend on rivers for survival. Inter Basin Transfer of river water is the hot topic of all the discussions. Our country is divided in land of drought and floods so being students of environment it is essential we concentrate on ways to enhance the flow of clean water and reduce encroachment on the flow basin. River basin planning can prove to be one of the major mitigation strategies to solve the Twin Problems of Bihar - drought and flood. According to me BRiP 2011 Conference will help me in enhancing my knowledge about the topic and broaden my views on the same. As I will get an opportunity to meet delegates of this field, it will be a good exposure for me and a platform to share my views also. This will help me in my career ahead. I am eagerly looking forward for this conference.
prakashvijayRivers have been very useful to men in all parts of the earth since very early times. They provide water to slake the thirst of men, to fertilize their lands and to provide a means of communication for the goods that transport from place to place. The escalating hydrological alteration of rivers on a global scale and resultant environmental degradation, has led to the establishment of the science of environmental flow assessment in the recent years whereby the quantity and quality of water required for ecosystem conservation and resource protection are determined. Environmental Flows (eFlows) refer to water provided within a river, wetland or coastal zone to maintain ecosystems and the benefits they provide to people. In our M.Tech project ,we worked on Mansagar Lake in Jaipur which motivated us to work further in assessing the water quality. It was depressing to see mass carnage of fish at Mansagar lake on 22 July 2010. Only recently the water quality had improved, leading to fish proliferating in the lake. Just one heavy shower that washed the city’s dirt and garbage into the lake was enough to lead to the death of thousands of fish. Therefore, it is essential to understand the pollution inventory of organic compounds entering the lake to maintain its water quality. Our main area of focus was to analyse the present physico-chemical characteristics of lake water and compare these present data with available past data to find out changes in lake water quality with time. We also analyzed the efficiency of constructed wetland set up there to treat the sewage to a tertiary degree. Pollutants were entering Mansagar Lake from point sources (sewage treatment plant and homes) and non point sources(runoff from adjoining highway, and human settlements spread over its catchment). We measured both filtered and non filtered BOD and COD to find out the contribution of suspended and dissolved organics . In this process we learnt many things about the difference in the characteristics of runoff received under typical Indian urban setting and those in the western world reported in the literature. River water quality management also depends a lot on realistic apportionment of various sources of organics entering the system and the principles of biodegradation also remain more or less similar. It will be a good learning experience for us, if we are permitted to attend your conference.
prashastMy interest in this area because i am working on the topic of methods of cleaning the river by environmentally impact assesd method in which after cleaning the river their will not be any adverse affect on the marine life and can make the environmentally and healthy surroundings of the rivers .As the ganga is going dirtier day by day so it will effect our drinking suppy of water. ganga is cover majority of indian peninsula so it should be clean and the environment near the river should be very hygienic so that i have keen interest in this project. The ganga water should be made clean as it is very important because in future we are going to interlinks the river bat if it will be dirty then it effect all the rivers for this i am intersted and want to be the part of the issue so that we can good marine life to our youngers one.by the ways i am also going to work on the project of channelising of the river so that it will help me in this project in the many ways and i can be more focussed on this topic.my work is also to do the computerised canal system so that it will control the flood system in the india and there will be less chance of flodding in india
praveensingh The Ganga (गगां) is a major river of the Indian subcontinent rising in the Himalaya Mountains and flowing about 2,510 km (1,560 mi) generally eastward through a vast plain to the Bay of Bengal. On its 1,560-mi (2,510-km) course, it flows southeast through the Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and West Bengal. In central Bangladesh it is joined by the Brahmaputra (ब्रम्हपुत्र) River and Meghna rivers. Their combined waters (called the Padma River) empty into the Bay of Bengal and form a delta 220 mi (354 km) wide, which is shared by India and Bangladesh. Its plain is one of the most fertile and densely populated regions in the world. The Ganges alone drains an area of over a million square km with a population of over 407 million. Millions depend on water from the holy river for several things: drinking, bathing, agriculture, industry and other household chores.Rivers are invaluable for us and will remain invaluable forever as the direct or indirect source of drinking water for crores of people. Similarly our forests will remain invaluable forever as the natural preserver of our invaluable water, topsoil, medicinal plants and wildlife. Hence discharge of untreated effluents from industries and untreated sewage from the cities and towns to the rivers must be strictly banned throughout our country and time-bound decisive steps must be taken to transform one third of our land into forests. Present paradigms of development need to be reviewed, which have been causing perpetual harm to our life-sustaining natural systems. Present forms of development must be tempered with the principle of non-violence, which is the base of all ethical principles. Surely, our country has moral and spiritual resources to provide to the world the example of a culture of non-violence and Truth (i.e. the true ultimate meaning of life) which can meet the challenges of the present technological age. (For Gandhiji’s view on Truth and non-violence, please see the Note entitled “ Gandhiji on Truth and non-violence”.) Our future generations will condemn and curse us if we fail to take now the right steps in the direction of preventing the impending catastrophic ecological crisis in the twenty first century, which otherwise can have devastating implications for them. want to know the view from person involved in river management.
