In your report you said this situation is not fair to any living organism. How do you think this will help people? Do you have any ideas on how to clean up this river?

Hello Shivam! Thank you for your participation. You chose a very interesting and very important topic to study. It is very important to look at the health of our major rivers, especially one as important as the Yamuna.

You gave one explanation on why it is important for the river to be healthy and said one way it could be improved. What other reasons is this river important and what are some other ways it could be cleaned or improved?
