Taps run dry at Amrapali Princely Estate
Water crisis looms large over Amrapali Princely Estate, a residential society in Sector 76, Noida, where about three thousands residents have had no water for their domestic needs for the last three days.
Residents said that when they spoke to the maintenance staff regarding the issue, they were told that the problem is due to a damaged water pipe line. They also complained that the builder has not taken water connection from Noida Authority and is supplying bore well water to them. They alleged that the builder has used sub-standard construction material due to which the pipeline has become damaged at different points.
Anurag Kumar, a resident, told City Spidey that they have been facing water crisis since Tuesday night. "Residents are using bottled water and are relying on water tankers to meet their daily needs," Kumar added.
When City Spidey contacted RP Singh, the maintenance manager, over the issue, he said that from Saturday morning, 100 water tankers will be called into service to meet residents’ needs. He added, “The damaged water pipeline is being repaired by the maintenance staff and things will improve soon.”
There are 19 towers in the society with each tower having 14 floors and 102 flats. Residents are staying in 12 of them.
