AFTER NO WATER, NOW NMMC SUPPLIES CONTAMINATED WATER TO CBD RESIDENTS

cbd-pipelines-1The residents of CBD are being supplied water from a leaking pipeline passing through an open sewage drain. The pipeline from the reservoir to CIDCO’s CBD node passing through an open sewage drain is leaking. When Navi Mumbai News visited the site, we saw that a pipeline of width nearly 6 inches is passing through an open sewage drain. The site exposes how the residents of CBD are also being supplied water mixed with sewage water. The effect that this will have on the health and hygiene of residents needs no explanation; though engineering experts say that water pipeline should never be pass through area have sewage and drainage pipelines. Yet this is happening in several areas. State Water Dept.s’ Principal Secretary Vishwas Dhumal says that this is an example of blatant negligence and calls for immediate action. The public of CBD should know that after spending lakhs of rupees on laying water pipelines in their area, coporators and officials are giving them this. On paper, allocation, sanction and execution of work is successfully done but in reality age old pipelines laid down by CIDCO bear the brunt of supplying water. Several of these pipelines are in very poor conditions and lie besides sewage and drainage pipelines. Residents of the city should not be carried away by false promises of politicians to make Navi Mumbai a Sinagpore while they miserably fail to address basic issues of the city.
