Delhi: Following the accusations over supply of bad quality water, the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) on Saturday started collecting water samples for testing from across the city.
DJB Vice Chairman, Dinesh Mohaniya spearheaded the team which collected samples in front of the public at Madangir.
DJB has been entrusted with the responsibility to lay water and sewer lines in unauthorised and regularised colonies alongwith providing clean and potable water to entire national capital territory.
Mohaniya had earlier decalred that a sample collection drive will be initiated by the DJB. “The drive is aimed to ensure supply of clean potable water to every house,” an official said.
“Five samples from each ward of Delhi will be collected, totalling it to 3,000 samples from entire Delhi which will be tested and checked as per the established norms,” he said.
