Due to the cleaning of Ganga Nahar, water scarcity will start in many areas of Ghaziabad, Noida and East Delhi from Saturday. Gangajal will be supplied from Pratap Vihar Plant from Friday night. During this period, there will be no supply of 50 cusecs of water in the Trans Hindon area of Ghaziabad. One hundred cusecs in Noida and 400 cusecs in East Delhi. People living in these areas may have to face a water shortage for about 25 days.
Water Shortage in Noida, Ghaziabad and East Delhi
Water comes to Ganganagar from Haridwar, which is supplied to Pratap Vihar Gangajal Plant. From where water is provided to many areas of Ghaziabad, Noida and East Delhi. Water supply from Haridwar will be stopped from a night on October 15. The supply from the Pratap Vihar plant will be stopped from the next day.
However, some extra water is also kept in reserve in the plant. With which the water from the tube wells will be supplied on the mix. The water held in reserve will run out in two days. After this, the water supply will be entirely dependent on the wells. The water supply will be identical to morning and evening, and only 25 per cent water will be supplied.
That is, water will come only one time, and that too will be provided only for half an hour instead of an hour.
For this, the Jal Nigam has made arrangements. After the supply is stopped from the Gangajal plant, the Municipal Corporation will supply drinking water through 56 small tube wells. Twenty-six large tube wells and 15 tankers for the Ghaziabad Vasundhara zone.
AK Choudhary, Executive Engineer, Ghaziabad Development Authority, said that it would supply water from 22 big tube wells in Indirapuram. Efforts will be made that people do not face water shortage during the festival. Similarly, arrangements have been made for water supply in Noida as well.
