Water supply will remain obstructed in many areas of Delhi including Rashtrapati Bhavan and Parliament, Raghav Chadha has given a big reason for this.
Raghav Chaddha, vice chairman of Delhi Jal Board (DJB), said on Tuesday that water supply in South Delhi, North Delhi, Central Delhi and West Delhi was going to be affected because despite the Supreme Court order, Haryana supplied adequate and clean water to Delhi. Is not facilitating Haryana is committing criminal negligence in this case.
According to Raghav Chadha, this will affect the water supply in five districts of Central, South, North and West Delhi including Rashtrapati Bhavan and Parliament from Wednesday. Chaddha said that Haryana has been continuously releasing ammonia-containing dirty water into the Yamuna, bringing the level of ammonia to Yamuna to 7.6 ppm. At the same time, the water level of Yamuna has reduced from 674 feet to 670 feet due to less water released by Haryana. Because of this Delhi’s water plants are not able to run at their 100 per cent capacity. Water production capacity at Wazirabad plant has been reduced from 135 MGT to 82, 92 to 71 at Chandrawal and 21 to 10 MGD at Okhla.
He said that at a time when there is also Navratri and Ramadan and the corona epidemic is also at the peak, the Haryana government is sending huge amount of ammonia (untreated waste) water to Delhi, which even a world-class plant cannot clean. The water that Haryana has to provide to Delhi should be 674 FEET in POND Level Yamuna, it has been reduced to 670 FEET. On one hand, Haryana is sending the water level in the water from 1 PPM to 7.36 PPM and sending it to Delhi and on the other hand it is also continuously cutting the water being sent.
This will reduce the supply of 85 MGD of water in Delhi, which may increase further. According to the vice president, in the last 15 days, many letters have been written to Haryana in this regard. Ammonia levels had been increasing for the last 15 to 20 days and we were also keeping our eyes on and doing our work by diluting water, but now when the pollution level has reached 7.6 ppm. In this way, the Haryana government is playing with the right to life of the people of Delhi by increasing the level of dirt in the water given to Delhi.
He said that we have also approached the Supreme Court in this matter and have been writing letters to the Haryana government continuously for 15-20 days about the amount of ammonia in the water, but the Haryana government has turned a blind eye. We demand from the Haryana government to give clean and complete water to Delhi.

Ramasubramanian was hearing a petition by the Delhi Jal Board alleging that the neighboring state of Haryana was releasing contaminated water containing excessive amounts of ammonia into the Yamuna river which would have become carcinogenic when mixed with chlorine. is. The bench had said that we are issuing notice without any debate. We are taking suo motu cognizance of the entire Yamuna river pollution case. The court appointed senior advocate Meenakshi Arora as amicus curiae in this case. Explain that the Delhi Jal Board usually stops water supply when the level of ammonia in the Yamuna river rises.
