The polluted water in canals indicate the adversities of human involvement in nature and there is need to study human influence on water pollution in canals.

In April this year (2014), the Leeds and Liverpool Canal was closed between Office Lock (2) and Spring Garden Lock (6) following a pollution incident.

Bohemian Brummie at 11:32:35, 22/12/13 commented on the pollution on the Trent and Mersey Canal just outside the city of Stafford.

From time to time, it is best to remove any deposits of silt or debris which buildup in the canals or at the mouth of canals

It is always better to close the flow of water in canal, so that all types of debris can be viewed and then suitably removed, Flusing of debris shown above in the figure is not advisable

And how to remove these deposits is there any particular technique behind it or flushing water with force is enough?
