After a spike in ammonia levels in the Yamuna led to the shut down of water treatment plants twice this year, Water Resources Minister Kapil Mishra Sunday said he would write to the Central Pollution Control Board CPCB) and other agencies on contamination of water from Haryana.

“We are writing to the CPCB, home secretary, and Union Ministry of Water Resources to immediately resolve this issue,” said the minister.

A team from the DJB collected evidence at various water sources in Haryana. The team found black-coloured water flowing in from the Panipat drain with ammonia levels at 56 ppm — more than 100 times the permissible levels of 0.5 ppm

“This flow of polluted water is in direct violation of Supreme Court guidelines, CPCB orders and inter-state agreements. Water being routed via Drain 2 was found to have algae in it… We request Haryana to immediately close the Panipat drain,” said the minister.
