Yamuna Water Level

Yamuna water level: In a big relief to people from flood woes, the water level of the Yamuna on Wednesday recorded at 205.25 metre below the danger mark.

It was recorded at 6 am on Wednesday against 205.35 meters at 7 pm on Tuesday. It was recorded at 205.26 meters at 6 pm on Tuesday. A “slight rise” was recorded in the Yamuna water level on Monday due to rains that lashed some areas of Haryana on Monday.

The danger mark for the river stands at 205.33 meters. The Yamuna River in Delhi crossed the danger mark at 5 pm on July 10.

Meanwhile, the Indian Meteorological Department, on Tuesday, predicted rainfall in Delhi and several parts of the national capital region.

On the other hand, several parts of the National capital continue to grapple with water logging and a flood-like situation. Rain lashed several parts of Delhi on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the State Government has lifted the ban on entry of heavy vehicles into the national capital, effective from today as the situation is gradually getting back to track in Delhi.

“Considering the improvement of the flood situation and descending water level of Yamuna River, it has been decided by the competent authorities to withdraw all the restrictions imposed as per the orders on July 13th and 17th with effect from July 19th,” read the official statement.

Earlier, in an order issued on July 13, the entry of heavy vehicles into Delhi was restricted from the Singhu border, Badarpur border, Loni border and Chilla border owing to waterlogging. However, heavy vehicles carrying food items and essentials were excluded from it.
