New Delhi: The Delhi Jal Board (DJB) said in a statement on Saturday that residents living in different parts of the national capital will face water shortage on Sunday morning due to repair work in Pitampura localities. The statement said that due to the major repair work in the 900 mm water line at Pitampura emanating from the Water Treatment Plant Hyderpur Phase I, there will be no low-pressure water supply in the area on Sunday morning.
According to the information, the areas that will be affected include Indrapuri, Mayapuri, Todapur village, Narayana village, Naraina Vihar, Krishi Kunj, Mansarovar Garden, Rajouri Garden, Subhash Nagar, Ramesh Nagar, Hari Nagar, Punjabi Bagh etc.
The DJB has appealed to the residents of these areas to store enough water and assured them that water tankers would be available in the affected areas.
Situation is likely to remain like this till improvement
Let us tell you that on May 6, similar news had come to the fore. It was then said that there could be a water shortage in Delhi amid the deepening crisis of Corona. The Delhi Jal Board had said on Wednesday that due to less water release in the Yamuna in Haryana, the drinking water supply would be affected in many parts of the national capital for the next three days. The board said in a statement that supply from Wazirabad, Chandrawal and Okhla water treatment plants has been “adversely” affected due to less raw water released into the river and fall in the water level in the Wazirabad pond. The board had said that water supply in parts of Central Delhi, North Delhi, South Delhi, West Delhi and cantonment areas would be affected in the “morning and evening” for the next three days. The situation is likely to remain the same till the level of the pond improves.
