Traffic on the Yamuna is light. Above Agra it shrinks to a small stream in summer, partly because of the amount of water removed by the canals for irrigation and domestic consumption. The river, however, has become one of the most-polluted in India, because so much of its course is through extremely densely populated areas where vast quantities of sewage have been discharged directly into it.

There was an advantage of lockdown, less pollution in the Yamuna. In the rainy season, Yamuna has a cleaner look, but this year, pollution seems to have increased in the river. A few days back the pollutant level had risen so high that three water treatment plants stopped functioning. Industrial waste is the main reason for pollution.

The Yamuna travels about 22 kilometers from Wazirabad Barrage in Delhi to Okhla Barrage and in this distance, around 20 drains fall into the Yamuna which pollutes the water of this river by 75-80 percent.
Yamuna river cleared during the lockdown and polluted during Unlock. But when the lock-down was over, work started in factories with harmful chemicals, and the chemical has come out of those factories into the Yamuna River.

The government had made a plan that treatment plants would be built in Delhi where the drains enter the Yamuna river, so that the water of the drains will be treated and drained into the river.A long-term plan has been made to clean the Yamuna which has been delayed for 6 months due to corona.

Speaking about the steps the government is taking to stop chemicals from factories from entering the Yamuna river if there is any such factory in Delhi which is causing pollution in the Yamuna river, then, strict action will be taken against it. If the polluting factories were to be shut down, the government would definitely do so.
