The work of laying pipelines and other infrastructure for water supply is being done on priority basis as many people have started residing in these areas and business certificates are also being issued.
Work on increasing water supply before summer
Officials said that since the water usage is less in winter, the residents are not facing any problem, but work is going on to augment the water supply before next summer. Work has been expedited on the 250 meter long line near the boosting station under construction in Sector 72. This boosting station will provide water to the residents of Sector 68-80 during the summer months when the demand is high.
GMDA officials said that at present, Gurugram has a capacity to treat 570 MLD of water; Out of which 513 MLD is treated daily. During winter, the water demand is around 400-450MLD, while in summer it increases to 500MLD or more. With the increasing population, the demand for water supply to GMDA is also expected to increase.
He further said, “With the increasing population, we will need one more unit of 100 MLD to meet the increasing demand for water. A project for the same was approved by the Chief Minister during the ninth board meeting of GMDA. This water treatment plant to be built at an estimated cost of 110 crores will be completed in two years.
