Residents across Noida have started to face the brunt of water supply which is getting disrupted due to the disconnection of Ganga water citing development works, scheduled from Friday till May 25. The Noida Authority has begun to replace the old pipelines with the new ones.

People residing in various societies of different sectors across the city have lashed out at their builders, stating the situation would not have gone this worse if the motors installed in their societies were repaired duly on time.

Manoj Srivastava, a resident of Paramount Floraville (Sector 137) raised this issue with Rajiv Tyagi, general manager of Noida Authority, complaining the residents of his society are facing severe water shortage. They have to bear with interrupted and contaminated supply, he further said.

Srivastava added, “There are three motors installed to cater to all the flats of the society. Out of these, only one is functional.”

He further stated the water stored in the fire tank for an emergency is being supplied to manage the crisis. Besides, the current supply is contaminated which is not at all consumable as it could lead to severe health hazards.

Other residents of Paramount Floraville have raised this issue before the private agency, appointed by the developer, and urged to resolve it as soon as possible but no assurance has been given so far in this regard.

City Spidey tried to reach out to Mukesh Aggarwal, managing director (Paramount Group of Companies) in connection with this issue but he was incommunicado.

The Noida Authority on Tuesday informed the supply will be partially affected due to the development works to be carried out from May 10 at nearby Delhi-Meerut Expressway.
