Haryana government plans to bring down BOD parameter of river Ghaggar, says CM Manohar Lal Khattar 18.12.2014 DNA: Opinion
Haryana government is planning to bring down the Bio Chemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) parameter of Ghaggar river to improve the quality of water, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said on Thursday . This parameter will be brought down to 10 million litres per day (MLD), he said. Out of 20 towns located along the river in Haryana, sewerage treatment plants (STPs) have become functional in 12 towns, whereas work on eight STPs has been initiated. Haryana will continue to follow the "SBR" technology in new STPs for big towns which automatically brings down the BOD level to 10 MLD in the long run, Khattar said in a meeting with his Punjab counterpart Parkash Singh Badal, according to an official release.

Haryana cuts water supply to Wazirabad 16.12.2014 Asian Age: Delhi
The BJP-led Haryana government has reduced the water supply to the Wazirabad plant which in turn has affected the supply of drinking water in North, Central and Northeast district areas of the national capital. Due to short supply, the production of the Wazirabad water treatment plant has gone down by 25 to 30 per cent. The depletion in the Wazirabad pond level has reportedly resulted in curtailment of production at the treatment plant by more than 25 per cent. The normal water level in Wazirabad pond is 674.5 ft which has depleted to less than 673 ft despite city witnessing heavy rains on Sunday. The DJB officials claimed that Haryana was not releasing adequate water to the Wazirabad pond to maintain the required level. A senior official said the curtailment in production at the Wazirabad plant was causing a lot of inconvenience as many areas on the command of the plant have started facing acute shortage of drinking water supply in the winter season. “Any reduction in supply of water to the Wazirabad ...
