Melbourne City Has 1812 MCM Dam Storage, Delhi NCR Zero

August28, 2017 (C) Ravinder Singh progressindia2015@gmail.com

It is extremely tragic that India is led by Corrupt & Incompetent even matters of Water, critical for India’s existence. India don’t release water data on daily basis –Melbourne for example provides hourly to historic data at one website with graphs, bar charts etc.

 

Melbourne City of 4.5m Population has 1812 MCM Dam Storage capacity to ensure Sustainable & Clean water supply – when average annual inflows into Storage Dams is 419 MCM for last 20 years and daily water requirement is 1 MCMFull Dams Storage capacity can serve Melbourne City for 1812 days – current storage is 1180 MCM enough for 1180 days Melbourne City requirement.

 

Delhi NCR Region with over 30m and fast growing population has No Dam Storage though a Large River – Yamuna flows through it.

 

Delhi is dependent on Sewage, Drainage flowing in Yamuna & Ground Water supply as own resources and water allocations from Bhakra and Tehri Dams. 

 

Hard Contaminated Water at Zero Pressure is supplied in Delhi to 60%-70% Population that requires COSTLY Home Storage, Pumping & RO Purification.

 

Renuka, Lakhwar-Vyasi and Kishau Dams on Upper Yamuna River with Storage Capacity of 1.805 MAF or 2226 MCM of water – when annual Inflows in Dams are 11,000 MCM downstream of Dams to 13,000 MCM at Okhla. [419 MCM for Melbourne Dams]

 

Ø 30 Times more Inflows in Yamuna Projects than all Melbourne Dams – Provide 0.146

mhac irrigation, 1060 MW of Power, and provide Flood Protection to over 1 mhac.

 

Ø Yet Yamuna Dam Projects, Critical for regions water needs are not being developed

since UYB agreement in 1954 – for over last 5 yrs these dams are included in list of Projects of ‘National Importance’ – [Pdf attached.]

 

Ø On Aug24 – 79 BCM of water was stored in 91 CWC dams – 5% of Indian River Flows.

 

Ø Three Indus Storage Dams Supply 30 BCM Clean Water but not used for Drinking.
