The amount of oxygen in the water of these rivers is negligible. The quantity of other dangerous chemicals is also high. The water of Krishna, Kali and Hindan River falls in Yamuna; hence the water of the Yamuna has also become completely polluted.
Krishna and Kali River are the tributaries of Hindan and it flows through districts of Saharanpur, Muzaffarnagar, Meerut, Ghaziabad, and Baghpat. Finally, the Hindan River is found in Noida. In these rivers, more than 350 industrial units and sewers of these districts are shed directly without refining. The amount of oxygen in these rivers is zero, so its water is not worth the use.
