Gurugram: Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Amit Khatri on Wednesday directed officials of various departments to work in a planned and timebound manner for the rejuvenation of ponds under the Gurujal Project.
He said that the ponds whose rejuvenation work is underway should be completed soon. For the other ponds where the work has not yet started, he asked the officials to prepare a plan.
The deputy commissioner issued these directions while chairing a review meeting on the progress of the rejuvenation of the water bodies under the Gurujal Project.
He said that ponds should be developed according to the design so that water conservation and underground water level can be improved.
He also urged the officers of various departments working under the Gurujal Project to work with urgency.
There are 250 total ponds in the district which will be rejuvenated in different phases. In the first phase, 31 ponds will be rejuvenated, out of which the work on 17 has been started. The work on other projects will be started soon.
The officials associated with the Gurujal project said that the renovation work of many ponds in the first phase is in the final stage.
"Ponds will play a big role in improving the underground water level. With the rejuvenation of these ponds, the surrounding environment will also become clean," Khatri said.
