Water supply to be hit in some parts of Delhi today

Water supply is likely to be affected in parts of Delhi on Sunday due to reduction of the pond level at Wazirabad, according to a communication from the Delhi Jal Board (DJB).

The level of the pond at Wazirabad was 667.30 ft against a normal level of 674.50 ft, and the receipt of water from the Delhi Sub-Branch (DSB) and the Carrier Lined Channel (CLC) was also low, the DJB said. This has affected water production at the Chandrawal and Wazirabad water treatment plants which draw raw water from the Wazirabad pond. The DSB and CLC carry water from Haryana to Delhi.
