New Delhi, 15 February (Language) Delhi Jal Board (DJB) vice-chairman Raghav Chadha announced on Sunday that the board had overcome the problem of water supply arising in the city in view of the sudden floods in Uttarakhand. He told the media here that the Bhagirathi water treatment plant is operating with 100 percent capacity while the Sonia Vihar plant has a water treatment capacity of 80 percent. He said, “We treat raw Ganga water coming from the Upper Ganges Canal of Muradnagar and provide it to the citizens of Delhi. But due to the recent natural calamity of Uttarakhand, the water quality was deteriorated. The water that we are getting is very bad because it contains a lot of dirt and other particles. “He explained that the quality of water is measured in the Nephelometric Turbidity Unit (NTU) which is expected to be around 100 but that Was gone till 8000. He said, “To counter this situation, we also closed Sonia Vihar Water Treatment Plant and Bhagirathi Water Treatment Plant. Both these plants provide around 250 MGD of water daily. The supply was affected in southern, eastern and north-east Delhi due to the closure of Sonia Vihar Water Treatment Plant and Bhagirathi Water Treatment Plant. Chadha said that NTU 8000 declined to 960 in Bhagirathi plant and NTU 8200 to 1000 in Sonia Vihar plant. On Sunday, he said that due to the sudden floods in Uttarakhand’s Chamoli, the dirt in the water coming from the Upper Ganga Canal in Delhi has increased to ‘unprecedented levels’ due to which water supply is expected to be affected in many parts of the national capital. On Monday, he said that adequate water tankers were arranged to manage the situation. He credited the engineers and officials of the board and said that he worked hard to remove dirt from the padi. He said that the Bhagirathi plant would operate with 100 per cent refining capacity while the Sonia Vihar plant was operating with 80 per cent capacity. Chadha said that the Sonia Vihar plant can operate up to 100 per cent capacity by Monday night. In the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, there was an accidental flood and major devastation in the Dhauliganga and Alaknanda rivers after a glacier burst last week.
