A month after Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) took over the responsibility to supply water to residential flats in Sushant Lok Phase I, its residents called on MCG officials on Friday to apprise them of their plight.
Severe shortage and non-availability of water in their flats was making their lives miserable. MCG had taken over the responsibility for water from the developer Ansal on September 1 on the directions of Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
An MCG spokesperson said that all the defunct tubewells had been repaired and optimum water flow was restored. Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) would also complete installation of water meters. Booster pumps are now made more powerful with new machines, so they can pump water to high-rise buildings as well, he said.
MCG found several lapses in the colony, the biggest flaw being water supply storage of 10,500 litres. Only 8 of the 18 tubewells were functional and water pumps needed repairs, the MCG official maintained.
MCG Commissioner V Umashankar fulfilled the long-pending demand of residents for underground water tanks.
Residents hoped that MCG officials lived up to their promises and helped them.
MCG will have to spend over Rs 100 crore to fix the deficiencies in the colony, according to its study.
CM Khattar had directed MCG last year to take over Sushant Lok Phase I and eight other private colonies from private developers.
