Kejriwal said that he was monitoring the situation closely.
A day after water supply to several areas of Delhi was hit due to high levels of ammonia in Yamuna, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is also the chairman of Delhi Jal Board (DJB), on Tuesday informed that “water production” was back to normal in the city and the “crisis” was over.
A tweet from Kejriwal on Tuesday afternoon read: “Crisis over. Water production back in normal.”
In another tweet, he congratulated a team of DJB "for handling the water crisis very well yesterday".
"With two water plants shut, it was a big crisis. However, DJB team's efforts helped reduce its impact,” Kejriwal tweeted.
On Monday, the chief minister had said the DJB had stopped operations at Chandrawal and Wazirabad Water Treatment Plants due to high ammonia levels in the Yamuna.
"High ammonia levels due to industrial waste being dumped into the Yamuna at Panipat has forced Chandrawal and Wazirabad Water Treatment Plants to stop operations. Haryana government has assured Delhi that they will release additional water soon to dilute the presence of ammonia," Kejriwal tweeted.
Kejriwal said that he was monitoring the situation closely and had directed the DJB to ensure “no part of Delhi goes dry, even if it means diverting water from other plants to Wazirabad.”
