Delhi government doing best to provide water to all: Kejriwal

When producing water by Delhi Jal Council rose to an “all-time high” of 955 million gallons per day on Sunday, Secretary Arvind Kejriwal said his government is doing its best to provide water to everyone in the city. Several areas of the city have faced a water crisis in recent weeks with the opposition BJP and Conference shut down the AAP government and staged protests including at the prime minister’s residence.

Govt are trying their best to provide water for everyone. Our engineers are working 24×7 at all odds,” Kejriwal tweeted.

AAP MLA and Delhi Jal Board of Directors (DJB) Vice President Raghav Chadha said water production has increased.

“I am pleased to announce that today’s water production of Delhi according to @DelhiJalBoard is at an all-time high of 955 MGD against the usual 910 MGD. Due to sufficient raw water resources in the Yamuna River as well as technical solutions, we tried to push our optimal level,” Chadha said in a tweet.

He said on Friday that 16,000 Cusecs of water discharged by Haryana three days ago had reached Delhi and that water treatment plants in the capital were operating at optimal levels.

Yamuna’s water levels at Wazirabad Barrage hit a 56-year low on Monday, with Haryana retaining Delhi’s water portion, he said earlier.

DJB last Sunday moved Supreme Court, making their way to Haryana to free the water portion of the capital.

The utility provided 935 MGD of water to the city’s residents compared to 1,150 MGD.
