Greater Noia West: The residents of La Residentia, a resdiential society in GrenoWest are miffed with the placement of Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in their society. The STP in the society is installed near Tower 1. Earlier, the residents were told that it was a temporary arrangement as no possessions of flats were given in Tower 1. However, the residents are worried that the arrangement might not be temporary afterall.
The residents complain that STP is not supposed to be installed near any residential tower but the builder and AoA of the society are planning to make it a permanent feature. They also complain that the STP is not in working condition for the past nine months. Thus, disposal tankers are called to collect the sewage waste, resulting in an acutely foul smell and lack of sanitation.
Sumil Jalota, a resident of La Residentia says, “We have made several requests to the builder and the AoA to reinstall the STP at its designated place. The STP should be installed underground, for which, they need to build a sewage line of 150 m - 200 m. However, the builder doesn't seem willing to do that."
Sumil continues, “AOA is working to make the STP near tower 1 operational instead of shifting it to the designated location.”
According to residents, the STP in their society is in close proximity to three towers- Tower 1, Tower 2 and Tower 3. It leads to a constant filthy smell and is unhygienic. This further results in residents getting sick. Those living on the ground floors are the worst sufferers.
As per residents, this is not the first time the poor arrangements in society have affected residents. A few days back, a compost machine was installed in Tower 14 without following any protocol to curb the harmful methane gas. There were no shafts to control the smell. It lead to several residents getting sick.
Sumil Jalota has requested the residents to raise and propagate the issue in front of authorities.

Satish Kumar, another resident of La Residentia says, “Nothing is fine in La residentia. Residents are facing grave difficulties like the arrangement of STP plants.”
Abhishek Chauhan, resident of La Residentia says, “The STP should not be placed here. We residents can not take this torture anymore. This needs to be taken care of on priority.”
CitySpidey also had a word with Lenju Thomas, AoA Secretary, La Residentia. He informed us that the AoA is recently formed on March 27, 2022, and is not registered yet. Thus, they don't have any authority to take action on this issue. He says, "Yes, the STP is not installed according to the original plan and it troubles residents. We took this issue up in front of the builder and he told us that he has some dues and his accounts are freezed. As for making the STP operational, it is the need of the hour as the manhole can blast anytime and it would be impossible to live in this society. We are planning to get it reinstalled according to original layout as soon as things get better.”
