East Delhi Municipal Corporation stops silt disposal at Geeta Colony site 22.4.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
The East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has stopped disposal of silt at a site in Geeta Colony. The silt, removed by various agencies from drains, will now be disposed at a new facility at Singhola village near Singhu border.

More than water treatment plants, we need proper management: Manoj Misra 25.3.2018 DNA: Popular News
Water activist Manoj Misra speaks to DNA about Delhi's water crisis and the possible solutions. Is there any way to combat the increase in ammonia levels in the Yamuna? Delhi gets its water from three sources — Ganga (through Ganga canal, which goes to east Delhi), Yamuna (through Western Yamuna canal and some of it through the river at Wazirabad). It is the water received at Wazirabad barrage, where the ammonia problem often arises. This is squarely due to the polluted water as released into the river upstream in Haryana at Panipat. Clearly, the solution is for Haryana to fix the polluting industries in its area. Where is the government lacking in cleaning the river, despite huge funds being allotted to this every year? The river needs its flow and prevention of polluted water from cities and industries from entering it. The state, despite huge spent, has failed to ensure either. Does the city need more efficient water treatment plants? It is not as much about more efficient water treatment plants, but ...
