Noida: Noida is facing a water supply crisis as the Gangajal plant has been forced to shut down following a pipeline leak near Noida Sector-70.
This situation is particularly alarming as the city’s supply of Ganges water had not yet been fully initiated, and incidents of pipeline leaks are increasing in various sectors.
The pipeline rupture near Noida Sector-70 led to the closure of the Gangajal plant, responsible for supplying Ganges water to the city. As a result, water supply has been disrupted in numerous areas of Noida.
The repair work is currently in progress, with workers diligently striving to fix the pipeline issue. The repair process is estimated to take around 24 hours, during which a water crisis is anticipated to persist for approximately two days.
The project manager of the Pratap Vihar Gangajal Plant confirmed the pipeline breakage and shared insights into the ongoing repair efforts. The team is working tirelessly to restore the pipeline’s functionality. The authorities have expressed their hopes that drinking water supply will resume from Wednesday morning onwards.
Noida heavily relies on Gangajal supply from Ghaziabad. Each day, a substantial population of 10 lakh residents depend on this pipeline for their water needs. In Noida, a daily supply of 240 MLD (Million Litres per Day) of Gangajal from Ghaziabad is supplemented with 330 MLD of ground water before being distributed to the city. The Noida Authority has deployed a team of workers to address the burst pipeline, underscoring the urgency to restore the water supply to affected areas.
This incident highlights the vulnerability of water supply systems and the need for vigilant maintenance to prevent disruptions that can adversely impact the daily lives of residents. As the repair work progresses, the residents of Noida eagerly await the resumption of a reliable and uninterrupted water supply.
