Following the MOU signed between the Delhi Jal Board and the University of Virginia, faculty and students from the University have proposed a detailed series of restoration visions for the 58km length of the Najafgarh Drain - the single largest point source of pollution for the Yamuna River.


Working across the disciplines of architecture, urban design, environmental science, public health, government and politics, art history and management, members of the University of Virginia community have collaborated with the team from the Delhi Jal Board led by CEO Keshav Chandra, working to imagine a future of ecological prosperity for this vital section of the capital city.
