The following data may be a bit old... the data may be presented using histograms.

Sabarmati :  4 mg/L  or BOD
BOD : biochemical oxygen demand.
In 2010 the statistics are:
          Markanda:   590 mg Oxygen /liter    BOD
          Amlakhadi :  353
             Kali:  364
         Yamuna canal:  247  BOD
          Yamuna  near Delhi:  70

The above are the worst affected.  Near cities and major towns the rivers are badly affected.  In rural areas they are better.
