Is the Haryana government really to be blamed for Delhi's water shortage? The answer perhaps lies in understanding the disparity in water supply and distribution and its growing demand within Delhi. As Lutyens' Delhi, a priviledged part of New Delhi, prepares for water austerity measures, here is how we stand in terms of water consumption:
|Demand amid losses
Total water supply in Delhi:
Per person water availability:
Demand for water in Delhi:
Net water availability:
Demand and supply gap (after losses):
Population served by the water supply network:
Delhi's own water resources meet only 15% of the total demand
88% water requirement from surface water, including water from the Yamuna river, the Ganga and the Bhakra dam.12% from ground water
184 MLD water is sourced from the city's tubewells
According to the Central Ground Water Board, in 1977, only 25 % areas in Delhi had saline water. Now almost 45% has brackish water, which is not recommended for domestic use
For the privileged few
Total water supply connections:
Sewage generated more than water supplied
Sewage generated by Delhi:
Renuka Dam on Giri (proposed):
Lakhvar Vyasi and Kisau dams (proposed):
Delhi's projected water requirement:
Projected shortfall in supply:
Shortfall (after assuming Bhagirathi and other proposed projects including Renuka Dam start supply water):
