Noida: Sewer water pond a big cause of worry for Sector 79 residents

Noida: The residents of Sector 79, Noida are struggling to get a designated nullah from Noida Authority, despite sending a written application to the authority. The residents have said that the sewer line is not even functional since it has been laid. It is completely choked in front of Gaur Sportswood and the entire sewer line water is flowing in Sports City land adjacent to the society.

Sanwarjeet Singh, a resident of Gaur Sportswood in Sector 79, tweeted, “@noida_authority @rituias2003 Please clean the waterlogging from sports city land of sector 79. This is due to inadequate infrastructure laid down by @noida_authority   @CPCB_OFFICIAL @PankajSinghBJP @MoHFW_INDIA @myogiadityanath  @Satishmahanaup @TOINoida @ShikhaTOI @Gaursports. (sic)”
 

CitySpidey talked to Singh to know his concerns, he said, “In the last three years, this matter has been highlighted to Noida Authority many times by residents of Sector 79 through social media and visits to the Noida Authority. On December 20, MLA Pankaj Singh also directed the Noida Authority officials for a permanent resolution of this issue. But even today, the situation is dreadful as almost a pond of sewer water has started forming on the Sports City plot.”

He also added, “This incomplete drain line adjacent to Gaur Sportswood is causing accumulation of water on Sports City land which is increasing day-by-day. It is not only a potent source of pathogenic organisms but also a very fertile breeding ground for mosquitoes. This open accumulation of water is damaging the ecosystem of sectors and also contaminating the groundwater of sectors. Further, the accumulation of water will lead to vector-borne diseases like malaria and dengue. The residents will have to suffer life-threatening ailments which can be  avoided if Noida Authority gives strong attention to the completion of drainage lines and connecting same to designated nullahs and sewage system.”
