Rama Apartments: Muddy water supply poses health hazards

Dwarka: Residents of Rama Apartments in Sector-11, Dwarka have been reportedly getting highly contaminated water supply in their homes since the last 3-4 days. They are now facing the risk of various water-borne diseases.

A group of residents said that they are getting contaminated water supply for the last 3-4 days. They said that the muddy water is not at all safe for their daily needs. Due to sewer filth being supplied through tap water, 50 per cent of water is being thrown on roads by the residents.

In this ongoing pandemic, it is even more serious hazard with the health of more than 5,000 people staying in the pocket being compromised due to inaction. This has also created chaos and disturbed the daily life of residents.

Dharamvir Gahlan, President of Rama Apartments said, “Water is very dirty. It smells so bad and is supplied by the Delhi Jal Board line. It’s been 3-4 days and the issue is still not resolved.”

Raj Narula, a resident of Rama Sector-11, said, “Also, the tap water is contaminated. We are constantly watching the quality of the DJB drinking water supply. It was smelly and yellowish for 3 days, especially in Sector-11. It is not at all fit to drink. There is a fear of catching diarrhoea or other bacterial diseases. We are advising everyone to drink water after boiling till clean supply is restored.”

Management of the Rama society is sharing the issue on several WhatsApp groups, complaining to authorities so that it can be addressed.

One of the residents of Rama Apartments complained, “The residents of our society are continuously getting sewer water supply from DJB lines for three days now. Despite raising multiple complaints in WhatsApp groups, nothing has been done by the DJB. This is a serious threat to our health.”

In this sultry weather, the authorities must take adequate steps to improve the water supply in this area.
