After an ultimatum by Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) regarding the installation of rainwater harvesting systems, AOAs of Shipra Sun City have started cleaning their RWH systems on Thursday.
Earlier this week a survey was conducted by GDA after which notices for 10 days were issued to the defaulters.
During the inspection, GDA had visited a total of 673 buildings, out of which only 253 had functional RWH systems. About 51 buildings had non-functional systems. On the other hand, there were 130 buildings where these systems were under construction. About 236 societies had no RWH systems at all and only 03 societies had installed new rainwater harvesting systems.
The newly formed AOA of Shipra Sun City Phase I and Sun Tower started the initiative and the trend was later followed by other RWAs like Amrapali Village and others.
Media coordinator of Shipra Sun City AOA (SSAOA), Anurag Ranjan said, "The RWH system was defunct for more than three years. A large amount of debris is being extracted from the system."
