This will bring respite to residents of DLF 1-5, Sushant Lok I, South City and Suncity. The boosting capacity of the station at Sector 16 was enhanced last week.
In a move that will bring cheer to residents of DLF 1-5, Sushant Lok I, South City and Suncity, the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has started supplying 150 KLD (kilolitres per day) water to areas located to the left of the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway.
The intent was to provide respite to residents living in sectors 24-57, including many private localities, which face massive water crisis every summer.
The boosting capacity of the station at Sector 16 was enhanced last week. On March 31, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar inaugurated the newly constructed water storage tank of 6,500 MLD (million litres per day) and a pump house at the Sector 16 boosting station.
“The capacity of Sector 16 boosting station has been increased from 110KLD to 175KLD. Residents will no longer need to face a water crisis,” explained GMDA executive engineer Sandeep Dahiya.
The whole process took nine months, and a budget of Rs 82 crore.
Two water storage tanks of 5,500 kilolitre (KL) each already exist at the Sector 16 boosting station.
Though the move has brought relief for the residents, but they continue to be sceptical of distribution lines.
Sushant Lok I RWA president AK Nagpal said, “Water supply is alright these days. This supply can be maintained if there’s no leakage, damage or rupture in the distribution lines.”
The same concerns were echoed by VMK Singh, a resident of Suncity. “Distribution lines often develop leakages. The main water supply line had developed leakages several times last summer resulting in huge water crisis, and wastage.” He also added that the water mafia should be checked to stop misuse of GMDA water distribution.
