The Panchkula Citizen Welfare Association once again highlighted the problem of water scarcity in various sectors
The Panchkula Citizen Welfare Association once again highlighted the problem of water scarcity in various sectors. The association said Panchkula’s water supply system has deteriorated, either due to a power failure or a leak.
He said that still two decades ago the water supply hours were 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and around two in the afternoon. However, for the past five years, it has been reduced from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., with no afternoon supply. The pressure is so low that the water barely reaches the ground floor, he said.
SK Nayar, president of the association, said: “The areas receiving water from the aqueduct works of the industrial zone of phase 1 (sector 12A and parts of sectors 14, 15 and 19; phases 1 and 2 ) become difficult for residents to live with. He said there had been no water supply to the first and second floors of homes and stores for the past decade.
Nayar said they asked officials such as the chief administrator, chief engineer and superintendent of HSVP and MP Panchkula Gian Chand Gupta to resolve the issues, but there was no no improvement.
However, Gupta denied such a problem of water shortage. He said, “Since we started getting water from the Kajauli waterworks, there has been no water shortage in the district. On the contrary, we have an adequate supply. Only residents complain about the low pressure on the third floor, which have motors in their homes.
