Ganga-Yamuna’s water level began to rise on Saturday due to incessant rainfall. Because of this, the amount of cutting at the ghats has increased while the problems faced by pilgrims and street vendors at the confluence have also increased. When the water level rises, the Sangam goes underground. Dozens of shops were absorbed after the water came that day. The pilgrim priests and the ghati dismantled the checkpoints throughout the day. Due to the release of around four lakh cusec of water from Haridwar, Narora and Kanpur into the Ganges, there is a possibility that water could enter the coastal areas in the Jyeshtha month itself. Engineers from the flood department say it can take three to four days for the water from the dams to get here.
Due to the rise in the water level of the Ganges in June, the problems in the lower levels began prematurely. The pilgrim priests had to sweat to remove posts and other items from Sangam on Saturday as the current increased. As the water continued to rise, people began moving goods to safe places. Dozens of stores and checkpoints had to be removed by evening. People have started to move from Sangam towards Qila Ghat.

Due to the rise in the water level of the Ganges at Phahamau Ghat, there is continuous erosion. The water levels of Ganga in Chhatnag and Yamuna in Naini are rising. Due to the rise in water levels over the past two days, sand erosion problems have worsened in Phahamau and other locations. Shaligram Pandey of Gangaputra Ghatia Sangh said that after a long time in June, people need to find a safe place due to the rise in water levels in Ganga.If this situation continues, this time around people may have to deal with flooding ahead of schedule. Teertpurohit Rajamani Tiwari says surveillance needs to be done. There is a concern that if more water suddenly comes in during the night, everything will drown. In such a situation, the control points will be removed in time. According to the Irrigation Flood Control Room, the water level of the Ganges in Phaphamau was measured at 8 p.m. at 76.56 meters. The Ganga became stable here in the late evening. But the water level in Chhatnag rose to 71.47 meters.

Here the water level rises continuously. The water level of Yamuna near Naini was also measured at 72.11 meters. The water level in Yamuna has risen by two centimeters. On the other hand, a large amount of water also entered the Ganges from the dams. On Saturday 3 lakh 75 thousand 423 cusec water were released from Haridwar. Similarly, due to the release of 13,850 cusecs from the Narora Dam and 10,000 722 cusecs from Kanpur, the water table is expected to continue to rise.

Problems with the ghats from cuts, fear of many more corpses coming outDue to the rise in the Ganga-Yamuna water level and erosion from rain, the extent of erosion at Phaphamau Ghat is increasing. The water released from the dams is expected to arrive in the next four days. Because of this, it is expected that many corpses will come out in Phaphamau and Chhatnag Ghat. No bodies were found in the Phaphamau Ghat until late Friday evening, but the way it rains does not rule out the bodies buried in the sand at any time. More than two hundred bodies are still buried in the sand at Phaphamau and Chhatnag Ghats.
