Dharmapuri, Ramagundam at Godavarikhani, Manthani and Kaleshwaram in Karimnagar district, at Basara and Mancherial in Adilabad district, at Eturunagaram in Warangal, Manuguru and Bhadrachalam in Khammam district. The TSPCB had already collected samples from 12 ghats and would compare the samples that would be collected during Godavari Pushkarams.
A senior official of TSPCB said it would take a month for the report to obtain. Respective zonal offices would be analysing the samples. In comparison to the previous study, officials felt that this time the results would be different. The last time due to floods a lot of waste was washed away but this time around the shortage of water in the river may throw up interesting data.
