Water supply in several parts of Delhi will be affected due to an increase in pollutants in raw water discharged from Haryana, Delhi Jal Board (DJB) said on Monday.

Parts of west, north, central and south Delhi are among the areas where the supply will be hit due to increased levels of ammonia in raw water, according to DJB.

The board has requested citizens to use water judiciously and assured it will restore normal supply as soon as possible.

“URGENT : Due to increase of pollution in raw water the water supply is affected in Part of West Delhi, North Delhi, Central Delhi, South Delhi, including Delhi Cantt. and New Delhi Municipal Council areas.Plz use water judiciously till the supply is normal,” the water board tweeted.

Last week, toxic foam was seen floating in the Yamuna at the Okhla barrage following which the Delhi Jal Board on Friday curtailed supply at Wazirabad, Chandrawal and Okhla water treatment plants due to high levels of pollutants in the river.

The National Green Tribunal (NGT)-appointed Yamuna Monitoring Committee (YMC) has sought a report from the Central Pollution Control Board, Delhi Pollution Control Committee and Industries Commissioner about the reasons behind “sudden froth” in the river.
