Sanjeev Kumar, General Secretary of RWA, Sector 51 says, “With the TDS level being close to two thousand, even the RO systems installed in the households are getting damaged as most of the systems are designed to clean the water up to 1000 TDS only. RWA Sector 51 requests Noida Authority to kindly take care of water quality, water pressure, time duration, and TDS level of water.”
Rajesh Kher, a resident of Sector 51 says, “Noida Authority responds slowly to every complain. High TDS water will affect our health, home appliances such as washing machine and RO among others. What is the authority going to do about that?”
Another resident, Atul Mittal says, “Due to low water pressure, we are suffering from the water storage. The timing is very odd, they supply water as per their choice. Due to high TDS, children are suffering from stomach ache.”
