Sohna Road colonies get sewer connection

Residents staying in apartments along Sohna Road can look forward to a comfortable living with a sewerage line being connected to the area after more than five years.

Majority of the townships set up along the road during the past five-seven years could not get sewer connections due to delay in construction of a pipeline.

Now the pipeline has started functioning and developers of the neighbouring colonies began applying for connections. In some cases connections have also been issued.

People will now get rid of the tractor tankers which used to extract sewage muck from their townships and dump it on some vacant land.

Through the sewer line, waste water from these townships will be taken to the main 50MGD sewerage treatment plant set up by Huda (Haryana Urban Development Authority) in Behrampur.

Dharmender Bhandari, the managing director, Bestech Group, that has developed Park View 1 and 2 on the Sohna Road, said that his company has already applied for a sewerage connection.

"We also have another business projects on the same road and we would apply for the connection after this project is completed," he added.

Townships such as Uniworld Garden have managed to get a sewerage connection for their colonies.

"We already have sewerage connection for Southcity-2 and we have got a new connection for Uniworld Garden too," said a Unitech official.

Anoop Saxena, the director of Vipul Infrastructure, also said that his company has applied for the sewerage line connection for its townships.

Using treated water for irrigation

Sewage water collected from several townships and call centre office buildings is used for watering plants on the median of a city road, thanks to a climate conservation initiative.

The effort would help in preserving drinking water while maintaining the city's green cover and utilising treated water from those buildings which are not connected to any sewer line, according to Uthaan, an NGO which has tied up with Huda and MCG for planting saplings at the median of Sohna Road.

The new initiative also coincides with Huda’s plan to introduce a dual water system under which recycled and potable water would be supplied in two separate pipelines in each housing unit.

Huda is promoting the use of non-potable water for watering plants. The Haryana government will formally notify it for the upcoming sectors 58-115 earmarked in the Gurgaon-Manesar Urban Complex 2025 (Gurgaon Master Plan).
