Water supply in Delhi hit by drop in Yamuna levels

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 5 May 2016, 19:19 IST

Water supply in Delhi-NCR is likely to be hit due to production of water at Wazirabad and Chandrawal WTP (Water Treatment Plant) being cut by over 50 per cent due to the drop of pond level in Yamuna and the reduced supply in CLC (Carrier Lined Channel).

The water shortage will affect the NDMC area, North Delhi, North West Delhi, Central Delhi and part of West and South Delhi, with Trans Yamuna being the sole unaffected area in the region.

On 4 May, the state-run National Thermal Power Corporation threatened to snap power supply to Reliance Infra-backed discoms in Delhi if they fail to pay around Rs 1,300 crore dues by midnight on 9 May, the Times of India reported.

The daily also said that it would take at least two days for the situation to be normalised.
