The Ganges Canal, also known as the Ganga Canal, is a historic canal system that irrigates the Doab region between the Ganges River and the Yamuna River. It is one of the oldest and longest irrigation canals in the world, stretching over 898 miles south of Haridwar.
The canal system consists of a main canal of 272 miles and about 4000 miles of long distribution channels, irrigating nearly 9,000 km² of fertile agricultural land in ten districts of Uttar Pradesh. The Ganges Canal was originally constructed from 1842 to 1854 and has since been enlarged to its present capacity.
It is primarily an irrigation canal, although parts of it were also used for navigation, and has several small hydroelectric plants capable of generating about 33MW if running. The canal has been a source of agricultural prosperity in the region, and the irrigation departments actively maintain it.
