Residential areas in Greater Noida, including Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Pi 3, may get Ganga Water Supply by May.
A network of pipelines and reservoirs has been developed by the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) for the distribution of 85 cusecs water from the upper Ganga canal in Haridwar. The trials to distribute around 51.09 cusecs of water may begin in March.
Presently, residents of Greater Noida use treated water taken from the wells and tube wells.
“We will be able to provide Ganga water to the residents of Greater Noida from May this year. While work to lay pipelines and build reservoirs was done earlier, we will start trials from mid-March,” said PK Kaushik, General Manager (Project) GNIDA.
“In the first phase, Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Pi 3, Swarn Nagri, Sector 36, 35 and phase 1 will be covered,” said an official.
“We get water from GNIDA three times during the day. From 5 am to 9 am, then from 1 pm to 2 pm, and between 5 pm and 9 pm. We use our own purifier,” said Harinder Bhati, a resident of the area who is living in Sector Beta 1.
