The Lieutenant Governor Shri V. K. Saxena today dedicated the Capital's first Waterfall Complex at Neeli Jheel, Asola Bhati Mines to the people of Delhi. Having come up after intense hard work by officials under consistent guidance of the LG, this latest iconic public recreational and educational space in the City is expected to help develop the area into a world class Eco tourism hub. Speaking on the occasion, the Lt. Governor said that this initiative, as indeed other incremental efforts being made in Delhi, emanated from the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of rejuvenating the City and providing enhanced and augmented facilities to the Capital’s residents.

Having come up as a part of the LG’s sustained efforts towards creating much needed green and open public recreational spaces in the Capital, these waterfalls are expected to attract domestic visitors, tourists, schools students, environmentalists and wildlife enthusiasts amongst others. Similar projects at various stages of completion in the City include, Roshanara Bagh, Baansera, Asita East, Najafgarh Drain, and Anang Tal Baoli, etc.

Notably, this is the fifth visit of the LG to Asola Bhati Mines, the first being on 31.05.2022, just five days after assuming the office. On 12.06.2022, LG visited the Sanctuary along with Chief Minister Shri Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia when he outlined his vision of developing the site into an eco-tourism hub that could also work as water reservoirs for the city.

On 24.07.2022, as a part of the annual Van Mahotsav, the LG planted a record 1 lakh saplings in the Asola Bhati Mines forest area. On his fourth visit on 16.10.2022, the LG inspected the trial run of these Waterfalls inaugurated today.

Located at a distance of approx. 5 km from the Maidan Garhi entrance inside the Asola Bhati Mines at Neeli Jheel, these four sites for the waterfalls were carefully selected on the basis of their geological/morphological features. They have no sediments and are hard rocky patches that have surfaced after erosion of the sediments over the last 3 decades, since mining activities were banned in the Bhati Mines.

The waterfalls have been created at these sites by pumping up the water from the Neeli Jheel to approx. 100 feet high rocky ledges from where the water plunges back into the Neeli Jheel. The water from the Jheel is being pumped upwards using a 15 HP pump that is being operated using a noiseless generator using solar power.

The waterfall simulated at four different ledges/cliffs not only provides an eco-tourism hub with beautiful scenic views but will also support greater saturation of dissolved oxygen and facilitate growth of flora and fauna in the stagnant water body.

The surroundings of the Waterfall Complex have been provided with safe viewing points for the visitors. An existing structure belonging to the Forest Department at the site that provides a bird’s-eye view of the Neeli Jheel has also been refurbished.

For the convenience of the visitors, the LG directed the officials to make arrangements for a cafeteria and public toilets using all eco-friendly material so as to avoid any harm to the environment. He has instructed officials to strictly ensure that no plastic is allowed inside the forest area. He also directed to deploy e-vehicles/electric feeder buses for the visitors coming to the Neeli Jheel.

The Neeli Jheel has water round the year and its source is a mix of ground water and the rain water collected from the nearby areas. This year, on the instructions of the LG, a huge quantity of rainwater was diverted from the neighbouring areas to the Asola Bhati Mines with the help of pipes. As a result, the water level in Neeli Jheel has also increased by at least 3 meters as compared to the past years. 

In this regard, bunds were also built at the Asola Bhati Mines. It was done in order to prevent waterlogging and store the rainwater in deep mining pits to prevent flooding, rain from falling down the hillocks onto neighbouring roads and colonies and reduce the rainwater wastage.
