DC issues directions on borewells

gurgaon Updated: Feb 02, 2012 01:27 IST

Deputy commissioner PC Meena has asked the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) to provide details of areas where they can and cannot provide drinking water within 15 days.

He said this while presiding over a meeting of district officers on Tuesday.

The district has been notified as a zone, where commercial exploitation of groundwater has been restricted by the Central Ground Water Authority (CGWA).

The DC has been appointed as its nodal authority.

Meena will form a team of officials, who will conduct inspections and seal illegally operating borewells in the city, after it gets a report from the Huda.

The DC said borewells used for construction and commercial purposes can be sealed. HTC
