Delhi Jal Board (DJB) chairman and water minister Satyendar Jain on Thursday inspected the ranney well in east Delhi to examine an ammonia removal plant that is being constructed in the area.

“The plant which has a capacity of one million gallons per day (MGD) is sufficient for providing water to 7,000 households, as it adds clean water directly to the underground reservoir for supply,” Jain tweeted on Thursday.

He said that more such plants are being installed around the national capital for augmenting water availability.

“DJB is making rigorous efforts to ensure that we have the complete infrastructure for providing 24/7 water supply by next summer,” said Jain, in a statement issued by his office.

Besides, he added, that unique water extraction and ranney wells are being built around Delhi to ensure 24X7 water supply.

Ranney wells use riverbank filtration , as they draw raw water through the sand and gravel aquifer, removing turbidity and most other contaminants, including surface waterborne organisms.
