New Delhi: The Delhi government said on Tuesday that it will form 32 teams to collect drinking water samples from across the city and the test results will be put in the public domain within a month.

The announcement came days after a Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) report said all potable water samples collected in the city failed quality analysis. The AAP government is already under attack from the opposition over the national capital’s air pollution crisis.

 

Delhi jal board’s chief water analyst Sanjay Sharma, who visited the Sonia Vihar treatment plant, said that under the water testing exercise, expected to begin within a week, five samples each will be collected from 272 wards. “Our water is one of the best in the world. We are 99 per cent sure that the samples will pass the tests. According to the World Health Organization, the permissable failure limit is 5 per cent,” he said while explaining the standards and process followed for water treatment.

Mr Sharma said that the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute or a laboratory approved by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories will be engaged for testing of water samples. In total, 1,400 water samples will be tested on 29 parameters, most importantly, for turbidity, pH levels, calcium, magnesium, hardness and others, he said.
