were working to restore New Delhi's full water supply Tuesday after
protesters damaged a key canal in a neighboring state and disrupted
supplies over the weekend — highlighting the extreme water vulnerability
faced by the Indian capital's 18 million residents.
Some supplies resumed to northern and central parts of New Delhi, and will hopefully reach western neighborhoods by Tuesday evening, said Delhi's water minister, Kapil Mishra. In the meantime, 70 water tankers have been sent to western areas of the city where taps have been dry for up to two days.
