Noida: The residents of Supertech Capetown, a residential highrise society in Sector 74, Noida raised the issue of unhealthy water supply in the society.
According to the residents, the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) scale of water is between 1,500-2,200 in most of the flats. They alleged that the builder has a connection of only 535 flats from the authority but the society has 4,419 flats. They shared that in the rest of the flats, builders supply groundwater that is not potable.
President of Supertech Capetown, Arun Sharma said, “We have complained many times but the quality of the water is the same. The water quality in society is not good. Last time, the TDS meter recorded the water quality at 2,170 ppm and now it is 1,720 ppm. The condition of the water is very pathetic, due to this, the water purifier needs maintenance within two or three weeks.”
“In February, the Noida Authority sent a letter to the builder for paying a fine of Rs 7,35,04,700 (Seven crores thirty-five lakhs four thousand seven hundred only) for supplying groundwater of 3,884 flats,” he added.
Varnit Bisht, a resident of Tower Number CS 9, said, “The quality of water is very pathetic. Builders supplied groundwater, which affects our appliances like washing machines and water purifiers. In two to three weeks, the filter of the water purifiers needs to be changed. Utensils catch rust very easily. During the rainy season, most of the time the water is contaminated and coloured.”
Anand Jha, a resident said, “Supertech has only 535 connections of Ganga water and in the rest of the flats, they are supplied groundwater which is illegal. The groundwater is not drinkable and it will affect the health of our children and family members. Who is responsible if anything happens? They are charging high maintenance charges from us but the facilities are not good.”
CitySpidey also tried to contact the facility team, but there was no response from them.
