Abstract

An investigation was made on the assimilate capacity of the Bagmati River (Kingdom of Nepal) in order to establish appropriate in-stream water quality standards and effluent quality requirements for new treatment facilities. As in other predominantly agrarian cultures, most of the people defecate on the river banks, fields, or waste ground. It was recommended that wastewaters be discharged through a dispersion structure that effects rapid mixing with stream flow during the dry season and that a survey of the stream configuration at the proposed discharge points during the dry season be undertaken immediately. This requirement is of particular importance at the upstream facility because the river is used for ritual and recreational bathing immediately downstream of the proposed discharge point.
