Noida Authority Inspects Rainwater Harvesting Systems, In Large Buildings
The Noida Authority on July 4, 2019 carried out an inspection drive to check the installation and the working of rainwater harvesting systems across large buildings and housing societies. The inspection was carried out in buildings spread in an area of 20,000 square metres.
The Authority, headed by Chairman-cum-Chief Executive Officer Alok Tandon, had formed 20 teams to carry out the drive across the city. "The teams have been asked to check if such buildings have installed rainwater harvesting systems and if it is in working condition. Notice is to be issued wherever lapses are found and seven days time will be given to get the system up and working, failure of which will attract legal action," the Authority's officer on special duty, Rajesh Kumar Singh said.
The move came soon after a video conference meeting held by Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath and Jal Shakti minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, with all district magistrates of the state. The focus of the meeting was the need for intensive water conservation. "A meeting of the 20 teams was held at the board room in the Noida Authority office and the officials concerned have been directed to carry out the inspection on residential societies and gated communities spread in area of more than 20,000 sq metres," Singh said.
Generally, whenever a completion certificate is issued by the Noida Authority for any residential society, the allottee has to give a written undertaking of having rainwater harvesting systems installed on their premises, he further added.
