Delhi: Yamuna water level recedes

In Delhi, the water level in the Yamuna has started to recede, after it reached the danger mark of 206.05 metres, the maximum in last five years.

The Flood Control Department said, the water level dropped to 204.8 metres yesterday and is expected to recede further. The water level did not increase even as 4,000 cusecs of water was released from the Hathni Kund Barrage. 

The Old Yamuna Bridge continues to be closed, with officials saying that the bridge may be opened for the public if the water level continues to drop at the same pace.

Over the last one week, around 14,000 people have been evacuated from the low-lying areas along the Yamuna river belt.

They have been accommodated in nearly 1,500 tents and temporary shelters, where they are being provided food and medical help.
