Gurgaon: In order to meet the future water supply requirements of Gurgaon, the Haryana government has prepared a comprehensive plan to augment the water supply capacity of the satellite town.

Under the plan, a water works facility will be constructed in Chandu Budhera village which is proposed to be of 132 MGD capacity with six units, each of 22 MGD.

"Once all the six units are completed, the water storage capacity will be enough to meet the water supply demand of projected population of 40 lakh of Gurgaon up to 2025 and that too for seven days even if there is any breach in the water channel as it happened three years back," HUDA administrator Praveen Kumar said.

The construction on first unit of 22 MGD of Chandu Budhera Water works has completed and now it is on trial run. The work is being done through Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) which has constructed raw water pump house, water treatment plant, clear water pump house, three storage tanks of 100 million gallon each and laid 6.5 km long water supply pipe line of 1,000 mm diameter from Chandu village to Basai water works. All these works with first unit had cost Rs 130 crore.

The HUDA Administrator said the second unit is expected to be completed by June next year. After this, work of constructing third unit of 22 MGD will be taken up, for which estimates are prepared. The third unit is expected to cost Rs 40.5 crore. As the demand of drinking water keeps on rising, the construction of remaining units will be taken up in future in a phased manner.
