Nowadays there is only mention of doing Sandhyavandanam inside a house. Can you please let me know how to do Trikala Sandhyavandanam, Tarpanam and Brahma Yagnam by the riverside or pond. For your information I am a Smaartha.

It is very simple, nothing special except some instructions.
When doing Sandhi in Tank or River
1. Should go in to a depth of water up to the sink of knee or at least the feet should drown in to water.
2. Should clean the surface of the water around you by pushing it to all sides by both of the hands.
3. Then should stand facing towards east (morning) / North (Afternoon and Evening) to do the rest
Achamanam, pranayamam, sankalpam-nyasam, marjanam, prasanam, achamanam, nyasam-punar marjanam, grahNam,
argya sankalpam - nyasam, argya dhanam then
should come to the bank with some water and do the "Asavadityo Brahma"
then again go in to water and do
achamanam, kesavati tarpanam

All the rest of the things Japam should be done in the bank
at the end go in to water for final achamanam and kayenavacha.
