The Delhi Jal Board was constituted on 6th April, 1998 through an Act of the Delhi Legislative Assembly incorporating the previous Delhi Water Supply and Sewage Disposal Undertaking. The Delhi Jal Board is responsible for the Production and Distribution of potable water after treating raw water from various sources like river Yamuna, Bhakhra Storage, Upper Ganga Canal & Groundwater and also provides treatment and disposal of waste water. The Delhi Jal Board provides water in bulk to the NDMC and Cantonment areas. Sewage from these areas is also collected for treatment and disposal by the Delhi Jal Board.

Supply of Potable/ Filtered water

The installed capacity of Water Treatment Plants is 747 MGD and by optimization through Tubewells, Ranney Wells etc., about 835 MGD potable water is being supplied by Delhi Jal Board. It is expected that by the end of 12th Five Year Plan i.e. 2012-17 water requirement in Delhi shall be 1140 MGD.

Delhi Jal Board is committed for augmentation of water supply in Delhi and has taken many steps in this direction.

Additional 45 MGD of Water has been ensured by the DJB by construction of recycling plants at the existing Water Treatment Plant at Haiderpur,Wazirabad, Bhagirathi and Chandrawal. All recycling plants except at Chandrawal have been commissioned. These plants used to waste around 10% of the water in the treatment process which would be utilized through these recycling plants. The Chandrawal Recycling plant is in progress and exlpected to be commissioned by 2012.

A parallel lined Canal from Munak to Haiderpur (102 Kms) has been constructed through Irrigation Department, Govt. of Haryana at cost of Rs. 520 crore. After its commisioning, there will be saving in the en-route seepage losses. This saved water will enable Delhi to run the WTPs at Bawana (20 MGD), Dwarka (50 MGD) and Okhla (20 MGD). DJB is pursuing in the matter of release of additional supply of raw water accrued on account of saving of 80 MGD en-route seepage losses through Munak Canal with Haryana.

With a view to rationalize the distributiion of water Delhi Jal Board has drawn-up an elaborate plan to construct 53 new Under Ground Reservoirs and Booster Pumping Stations (UGR/BPS). Out of 53, 34 nos have been already commssioned & 03 are ready for commissioning. 09 Under Ground Reservoirs are in progress/completed & rest 07 nos. are in process of tendering, allotment of land etc.

The water management contact of three command areas of Malviya Nagar, Vasant Kunj UGRs and Nangloi Water Treatment Plants are being given on PPP model.

JICA has submitted final report on Water Master Plan 2021, on various ran water Scenario of availability of raw water. The same is being processed implementation.

Initiatives in the field of water conservations

We are also active in the field of water conservation and have a separate leak detection Cell for detecting various leakages in the system. Rapid urbanization has put-up tremendous pressure on the existing civic services including supply of drinking water in Delhi. These have resulted in drastic decrease in ground water table in Delhi. This could be avoided through a simple, economical and eco-friendly method of rainwater harvesting system. DJB has given financial assistance to the 169 cases amounting to Rs. 78,89,473/- lacs and DJB has imlemented RWH system for its 190 buildings. This will make available about 5.1 lac cubic meter of rain water for per annum for recharge of ground water. Necessary changes on the web site may please be done accordingly.

Bhagidari Scheme is being implemented by DJB in which more than 100 Resident Welfare Associations are actively participating and it covers following subjects:

  1. Rain Water Harvesting
  2. Distribution of Water through tankers.
  3. Replacement of old /leaking service pipes.
  4. Water bill payment and collection.
  5. Curbing wastage of water.

Quality Assurance Measures

Water supplied by the Delhi Jal Board is not only potable and wholesome but also conforms to the standards laid down by the Urban Development Ministry, Govt. of India. Quality assurance measures are taken right from raw water stage up to the consumers end. The water supplied from Ranney Wells and tube wells is also tested regularly. Water samples are collected daily from the distribution system i.e. individual taps and public hydrants etc. located in different parts of the city to ensure that safe drinking water reaches the consumers. Efforts are also being made to achieve ISO 9002 certification for which DJB is in touch with Bureau of India Standards.

With a view to avoid contamination of water because of service lines passing through drain sewers, 10789 cases were identified and notices were issued to consumers for shifting of their water lines. 3687 such connections were dis-connected and 4899 consumers shifted their service lines themselves.
