Eating Trash on the Ganges
The Ganges River is India’s holiest river, considered a source of spiritual purification for devout Hindus, it is also an economic lifeline and it is in peril.

The Ganges pollution problems are caused by domestic waste, untreated industrial effluent including toxic and heavy metals and cremation grounds (ashes from cremated loved ones are thrown into the sacred river).

The problem is quite huge and an ambitious restoration initiative has been in place, but lapses in planning and financial mismanagement has slowed up efforts. However, the Aquarius Systems trash skimmer boat, also known as a trash hunter, is helping by collecting the floating debris; about 20 tons of trash in four hours.

The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers annual budget for controlling invasive aquatic plants has grown from $124 million in 2008 to $135 million in 2012.
