The Major Challenges are :
1. In the name of religion many waste are put in river this is most difficult to control as it hurts people sentiments.
i think to stop this activity many platforms with pot are to be kept on the banks at regular intervals where people can put their diya and all other thing which they want to offer.

separate channels to be used to bathing the water of which should be treated first before it re enters the main stream
