Water supply affected due to high ammonia levels from Haryana, says DJB

New Delhi: Delhi Jal Board (DJB) Vice Chairman Raghav Chadha on Monday said that a spike in ammonia levels in the raw water discharged from Haryana affected the water supply in parts of the national capital.

He wrote on Twitter, “Due to increase in pollutants (ammonia levels) in raw water discharged from Haryana, the water supply will be affected in parts of West Delhi, North Delhi, Central Delhi and South Delhi. We endeavour to restore normal water supply ASAP. Please use water judiciously.”

The water supply was also affected on Friday due to the curtailed supply from the Wazirabad, Chandrawal and Okhla water treatment plants. It happened because of the high level of pollutants in the Yamuna river.

As per reports, Haryana had opened the drains having stagnant water with high pollutants. The Yamuna river has witnessed a sudden froth. 

Now, the NGT-appointed Yamuna Monitoring Committee (YMC) has sought a report from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) and industries commissioner over the sudden froth at the river.
