Greater Noida Water Crisis, Swimming Pools Shut, Society Residents Turn to Water Tankers for Help

Low water pressure has made the situation worse for residents.

Greater Noida residential societies are hiring water tankers for help. According to the report, the Eldeco Aamantran Society in Noida has started hiring private water tankers for the last five days to meet the daily needs of drinking water.

Along with this, several other housing societies of other sectors have shut down their swimming pools amid water crisis. The development comes as some parts of Noida and Greater Noida have been reporting water shortages since last week. In the meantime, some sectors complained of low water pressure and dirty water supply, taps have run dry in others.

Along with water shortage, the rise in temperatures has made matters worse. Many areas in Greater Noida reported water pipe leaks that have led to a suspension of the Ganga water supply.

Nikhil Singhal, president of Noida High Rise Federation (NHRF) 100x sectors, told that over 5000 residents are facing water crisis and they have been forced to get water from private tankers.

According to Singhal, low water pressure has made the situation worse for residents to fill their tanks, which forced them to call for tankers on daily basis.

Sushil Kumar Sharma, RWA President of Udyog Vihar LIG Flats in Noida, told that the official site of Noida Jal (online or App) was not working, and residents could not raise complaints. The other sectors that face water crisis include 71, 72, 62, 19, 20, 121 and more.

Apart from this, there were complaints of pipeline leakage from Sector Sigma 2 and Sector Eta 1 and low-pressure supply from Sector Gamma 2.
