Residents of the Civitech Sampriti, a society based in Noida Sector 77, took to Twitter and sought attention of the authorities for the clogged water condition near the residency.
In their tweets they said that the clogged water was an open invitation to mosquito breeding. One of the residents, Vaibhav, tagged the Noida Development Authority and their MLA Pankaj Singh in his tweet saying there were several puddles in the vicinity of the residential colony.
Another resident, Vineet Pratap Singh said, “since the sanitation staff of the area failed to clear the clogged water, we have now approached higher authorities, hoping they will pay attention and will solve the issue at the earliest.”
Singh further told City Spidey that the clogged water runs alongside sector 74 to Sector 78 main road's footpath and stinks horribly. It also causes trouble for the pedestrians.
With the monsoon season at city's doorstep, such water puddles near residential areas can result to rapid rise in dengue and malaria cases.
Meanwhile, Noida Development Authority's Senior Manager with public health, S.C. Mishra said that the issue was noted and appropriate action will be taken soon.
