  • Water Production during the summer season is being maintained at 830 - 835 million gallons per day consistently.
  • Water is supplied to about 18 million population of Delhi through a water supply network comprising of 11350 kms long pipelines and now 105 underground reservoirs will be functioning for rationalized distribution of supply in Delhi.
  • 407 new water tankers having stainless steel containers and fitted with GPS have been engaged on long duration contract for improving the water tanker supply delivery system in the city.
  • An efficient mechanism developed by DIMTS is in position to monitor the movement of these tankers to ensure timely delivery. It has resulted in improving the customer satisfaction level.
  • Water supply distribution network has been developed in a planned manner to cover both planned and unplanned areas. Water supply has been released in 847 unauthorised colonies.
  • Extensive quality checks of water supply starting from raw water stage upto the consumers end are carried out as per standards of BIS 10500-2012. Seven laboratories installed at water treatment plants and six zonal laboratories located at various parts of the city work round the clock to ensure supply of potable water at the consumers end.
  • More than 200 kms of new pipelines have been laid to strengthen the old distribution pipeline network on the transmission as well as the distribution side.
  • During last year about 250kms of old water lines were replaced and 330 major water leakages were repaired.
