New Delhi: Some areas of Delhi will face a water crisis as three water treatment plants - Wazirabad, Chandrawal and Okhla - are closed due to the rising levels of the Yamuna, said Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday.
"Due to the rising water level of River Yamuna, water treatment plants in Wazirabad, Chandrawal and Okhla are being closed. This would cause water problems in some areas of Delhi. As soon as the river's water level decreases, we will try to restart these plants again, " CM Kejriwal shared in a tweet.
यमुना में बढ़ते जल स्तर की वजह से वज़ीराबाद, चन्द्रावल और ओखला वॉटर ट्रीटमेंट प्लांट बंद करने पड़ रहे हैं। इस वजह से दिल्ली के कुछ इलाक़ों में पानी की परेशानी होगी। जैसे ही यमुना का पानी कम होगा, इन्हें जल्द से जल्द चालू करने की कोशिश करेंगे।— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) July 13, 2023
