Sec 76, Noida: Residents complain of unhygienic conditions outside the society and say the area has become a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Residents of Skytech Matrott, Sector 76, Noida, have been grappling with a choked drain that runs along the boundary wall of the society for the past 15 days. The drain has been overflowing, and muck and algae have accumulated along the boundary wall.
Pallav Rai, a resident, says that the drain has created unhygienic conditions outside the society and the area has become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. He said, “Residents, especially those in houses close to the drain, do not open the windows due to the mosquitoes.”
Sachin Goyal, a resident of JM Orchid (another society in the sector), told City Spidey that he has taken up the issue with Noida Authority. “The unhygienic condition of the area may lead to the problem of dengue fever,” he added.
When City Spidey spoke to YK Harish, sanitation inspector with Noida Authority, he said that he was aware of the issue and will resolve it in a week.
“I have to outsource a JCB machine to clean the choked drain. I need to take approval from my senior. Such official formalities will be completed in a day or two after which the JCB machine will be deployed. A damaged underground water pipeline has also been repaired. The drain won’t overflow anymore," he said.
