GURGAON: Despite the pipeline being laid seven months ago in Sector 38, residents are suffering from water shortage.

The water connection to the pipeline is yet to be activated, leaving 200 families living in high-rises without adequate supply. Infrastructure in the sector was first laid in 1998 but with increasing Floor Area Ratio (FAR) and population, the supply became insufficient to meet the demand.

Every year during the summer months, residents face hardships. In March 2022, GMDA approved additional water connections for the sector.

A year later, a new water pipeline was laid. Residents alleged that it was supposed to be connected to the master pipeline in Sector 47 but the connection has not been made yet.

“We live without water supply for days at a time and have to depend on private tankers,” said LD Arora, a resident. We are getting false assurances from MCG but no relief has been provided yet. We urge the civic body to speed up this process and save us from facing this chronic crisis.

Additionally, motors are yet to be installed at the new boosting station, which will improve supply to the sector. Residents said that despite repeated complaints, the MCG has not provided a definite timeline as to when the connection will be completed. He said that he was promised better civic amenities before the Lok Sabha elections this year.

“We were assured that our civic grievances would be resolved by May 20, but June is over and we have not got water connection till date. We have been dealing with severe shortages every summer and the MCG has Eyes closed,” said RWA president Sajesh Gallia.

When contacted, Sanjeev Kumar, executive engineer of the MCG, said, “There is a gas pipeline in the area, and we have sought necessary permission for the excavation work. We hope to get the approval this week. “
