OASE Professional CyanoClear eliminate Algal bloom from Ganga water in Varanasi
In the month of May the water of the river Ganga in Varanasi suddenly turned green. This sudden change in colour was due to a Cyanobacteria bloom also commonly known as Blue-Green Algae. Concentrations of nitrogen and phosphorous were increasing, posing a threat to aquatic life and disturbing ecosystem of the river in the holy town.
The National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) contacted OASE Partner SayEarth for a solution to this problem.
OASE Professional came out with an immediate solution. A consignment of CyanoClear left immediately for India and trials were conducted at the Dashashwamedh Ghat in Varanasi.
The algae were eliminated in hours after the application of the solution and there was a clear improvement in the colour of the water.
