Delhi’s Water Supply To Be Affected As Yamuna Dried Up ; Here’s The Full List Of Areas

The Delhi Jal Board on Thursday informed that the water supply in certain parts of Delhi will be affected. This is due to a steep depletion in the levels of water at the Wazirabad pond. The reason behind operations have halted in Wazirabad, Chandrawal and Okhla water treatment plants are due to Haryana’s reduction of the release of raw water in the Yamuna river.

Water Supply To Remain Less Until Water Levels Restore

The Delhi Jal Board also informed that the water supply will be affected as long as the water levels in the Wazirabad pond do not return to normal. The Chandrawal, Wazirabad and Okhla water treatment plants have a capacity of 90, 135 and 20 million gallons per day (MGD) respectively.

The entire city of Delhi requires around 1200 MGD while the Delhi Jal Board supplies up to 950 MGD.
