GURGAON: Residents of Sector 45 say they are miffed with the “lackadaisical” attitude of MCG officials, who have failed to commission the new boosting station in the area despite the infrastructure having been readied 18 months ago.
MCG started construction of the boosting station in the sector in September 2020 and the work was completed in February 2022. However, it took the civic body two years to award the contract to connect the boosting station with GMDA’s master water pipeline after repeated reminders from the residents, they say. Puneet Pahwa, RWA general secretary of the sector, said that the work order was awarded in April this year.
“The civic body initiated the process to apply for water connection with GMDA in May But they are still not able to get this done despite the fact that both GMDA and MCG are headed by the same person. It seems they do not want to upgrade the infrastructure and so water tanker suppliers are flourishing and making money by creating artificial shortages,” he added.
They pointed out the commissioning of this boosting station is required as the existing infrastructure is unable to cater to the demand of more than 10,000 residents living in the area. “The infrastructure of the sector was developed nearly three decades ago and over the years, the population has increased manifold. Even the existing boosting station is in a poor condition with frequent malfunctioning of motor pumps disrupting the supply, adding to the residents’ woes.
We have also complained to Haryana Water Resource Authority about illegal water tankers and borewells,” said OP Yadav, RWA president. MCG executive engineer Vicky Kumar said that they have sought the water connection permission from GMDA.
“The work order for water connection to the boosting station has been awarded and we have been informed by GMDA that they will give the necessary approval by next week. Then, we will connect the water pipeline and commission the boosting station,” he said.
