The green panel noted that nearly 67 per cent of the pollution reaching the Yamuna would be treated by the two sewage treatment plants (STP) located at Delhi Gate and Najafgarh under Phase 1 of the 'Maili se Nirmal (Dirty to Pure) Yamuna Revitalisation Project 2017'.
The green body also observed that almost 67% of the pollution in the Yamuna will be cleaned after two years once 14 Sewage Treatment Plants come up by 2019. It had sought a report with regard to functioning of these plants. According to the petition, dumping of waste in the Yamuna river had led to stagnation of the river and consequent "explosive breeding" of insects, which is a "biological indicator of water quality and localised water pollution". The court said it would slap a fine of Rs 5,000 on those who violate the order.
