DJB’s three Water Treatment Plants, Wazirabad, Chandrawal and Okhla, partially functional
- Some relief to parts of West Delhi through Delhi Sub-Branch Canal
Due to the untiring efforts of the Delhi Government and DJB Officers and Officials, the water situation has improved remarkably today on 23rd February, 2016.
The decreased level of ammonia in the Wazirabad Pond has helped the three Water Treatment Plants, Wazirabad, Chandrawal and Okhla to start functioning partially.The partial commissioning of the three plants has helped water availability in North Delhi, Central Delhi, NDMC area, parts of South Delhi and some pockets of West Delhi. However, the plants are not able to function to their full capacity yet, since there has been a drop in the water level at the Wazirabad Pond.
In the Western part of Delhi, water availability is much less than the desired level because of the damage to the Carrier Lined Channel. Water has started to flow in the Delhi Sub- Branch and it is expected that by the late hours of 23rd February, 2016 the Canal will bring 80 MGD of water as against a normal supply of 580 MGD.
There is a likelihood that parts of West Delhi will have some piped supply of water on the morning of 24th February. However, the water supply in Dwarka and other parts of West Delhi will remain affected to a large extent, although DJB is making all out efforts to provide water through tankers in the area.
