New Delhi, Feb 27: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Sunday, Feb 27 inaugurated five under ground reservoirs to ensure equitable distribution of water across the national capital.

"DJB under the guidance and leadership of the Chief Minister took a major step to ensure equitable distribution of water across the capital and particularly in those colonies, facing difficulties due to non-availability of drinking water supply with acute low pressure," a release said.

The reservoirs, with a storage capacity of 14 lakh litres, cost Rs 2.35 crores and they will ensure that there is no shortage of water even during summer, it said.

Dikshit dedicated five new UGRs to the people in separate function organised at five places under Rajender Nagar Assembly segment, it said.

"There will be no shortage of drinking water during ensuing summer season as the government has taken a number of steps to enhance its water production by putting an end to leakage in pipe lines and commissioning water treatment plants with capacity of 80 MGD," the release said.

Besides Dikshit, Industries and Labour Minister Ramakant Goswami, CEO Delhi Jal Board Ramesh Negi and others senior officers of DJB were present on the occasion.
