For the residents of Supertech Eco Village-2, it's been a nightmare for the past 48 hours with constant water shortage.
As a result, female residents of Supertech Eco Village-2, a high-rise based in Greater Noida, staged a protest against the developer-owned management.
Residents informed that the issue of water crisis began on Monday after technical disturbance in the authority's motor pump was reported, which was repaired later. Interestingly, the water crisis pertained even after the pump was repaired as the water tanks of most of the towers had run dry.
Meanwhile, to tackle the water crisis, the management had arranged a backup for water. Nitish Arora, head of the management department claimed over 105 water tankers were supplied on Monday (65) and Tuesday (40) to meet the demand of the residents. "Water shortage emerged due to a technical fault in the authority's motor pump, which was repaired later in the evening on Monday. Menwhile, we had arranged water tankers for the backup so that residents can get water for their use till the rooftop tanks are filled," he said.
Arora further informed that the water supply has already started but it will take around 3-4 hours to fill the tanks. "We are putting our best efforts to resume water supply in all towers. But the problem is that if one tank is filled and we start filling the second one, the previous tank runs dry again. Also, due to water shortage, residents have stored extra water to avoid the crisis," added Arora.
Residents thanked the management for arranging the water tanks at the time of crisis. But they blamed the management for the situation as the society has one pump room (with two motor pumps) that supplies water to 20 towers having 1500 families. They demanded that the management should arrange more pumps to avoid such situation in future.
Replying on it, Arora said, “We have already two motor pumps for the entire society. At present, around 1,600 families are residing in the society, while the total number of flats are 6,000. Hence, two motor pump was enough to supply water as per the current need. For some emergency situation we have also decided to start another pump room (which also comprises two pumps), which will be made operational in the next 15-20 days.”
