The chief minister, who inspected the Coronation Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in North Delhi’s Burari, said such projects would put an end to the city’s water woes.

“Rolling out several projects to increase water availability by 15-20% in next 2 yrs n 50% next 5 yrs. Hopefully, no water problem in Del after that,” Kejriwal said on Twitter.  “Till then, as projects start, water problem wud keep decreasing (No increase in water availability for several yrs before our govt),” he said.

He said the AAP government has prepared a blueprint through which water availability will be increased to the affected areas.  The chief minister added that the work of the Burari STP will be completed by June next year.
