The Haryana Urban Development Authority has assured the residents of a parched DLF City Phase I that it will strengthen the water distribution system in the next one month. HUDA has also told the residents that it will build additional water reservoirs and improve the supplying in the coming month.
The assurance came on Friday evening after a group of irate DLF City residents and DLF group officials met HUDA administrator Nitin K. Yadav in his office. The residents, led by the residents’ welfare association, complained that it was for the first time DLF City’s (Phase I) history that residents have run out of water from all sources, the borewells, the reservoirs, and even the HUDA supply.
Yadav, in his reply, said that HUDA has enough water in its reservoirs in the Basai-based water treatment plant for the entire population of the city. However, according to Yadav, HUDA lacks an effective distribution network. He said they would need a month to strengthen the network.
“In regard to meet the demand of the residents of DLF City (Phase I), we are going to set up a dedicated water reservoir at a site near Hotel Bristol, this where DLF Gymkhana Club used to be. The reservoir would mostly benefit Phase I of DLF City, and others as well. I have asked DLF officials to make the necessary arrangements for the reservoirs,” Yadav said. RS Rathee, former president of DLF Qutub Enclave, said it’s been a month and the DLF City’s water problem has not been solved.
