Despite the high level of pollution, Yamuna’s surface is looking clean these days as the skimmer machine keeps cleaning the floating waste on a regular basis. This situation will be as it is for the next two months. The Central Government has given the skimmer machine as an experiment under the Namami Gange project, which provides its service daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Masani and Daula Maula sewer lines are flowing directly into the river. Chemical waste from the sewer lines has formed a thick layer on the riverbed preventing the ground water from recharging. The skimmer machine has been working from the past two months and will be continue to do so until June 30th only.
