यमुना को प्रदूषण मुक्त बनाने के लिए आज एक बेहद महत्वपूर्ण प्रोजेक्ट को मंजूरी दी है। इसके तहत केशोपुर व नजफगढ में गिरने वाले 85 MGD सीवर को रोज़ाना साफ़ कर नजफगढ नाले में डाला जाएगा. इससे यमुना के पानी का प्रदूषण 30% तक घटेगा. यह कदम यमुना साफ़ करने में बहुत मददगार साबित होगा.

“Sewage pumping stations of 55 MGD cumulative capacity will be built on Badli, Nigam Bodh and Mori Gate drains. The dirty water of these drains will not go into the Yamuna,” Kejriwal said on Monday in relation to Yamuna pollution.

The Yamuna enters Delhi at Palla in the north and leaves at Jaitpur in the south, traversing a length of 48 km. Twenty-two drains carrying domestic waste water and industrial effluent fall into the Yamuna between Wazirabad and Okhla. Though the 22-km stretch is less than two per cent of the river length, it accounts for about 80 per cent of the pollution in the river. The DJB in a statement said Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has approved projects worth Rs 869 crore to make the Yamuna pollution free.

A 46-km long sewerage line will be laid at Chandanhola and Satbari in the Chhatarpur assembly constituency in South Delhi at a cost Rs 54 crore. The Chief Minister said that 85 million gallons of sewage from Keshopur and Najafgarh will be cleaned before it flows into the Najafgarh drain. This, according to the chief minister, is expected to reduce the pollution load in the Yamuna river by 30 per cent.
