Noida: Ahead of this rainy season, the Noida authority, on Wednesday, has started an inspection of all the high-rise residential complexes and societies to ensure that they have proper functioning to conserve rain water which will gradually increase the ground water level.
The move has been initiated following the directions from Uttar Pradesh government to recharge and conserve the ground water.
Officials said that the inspection will be done at all the high-rise societies and residential complexes that are built over an area of 20, 000 square meters.
Alok Tandon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Noida authority said that 20 teams of three members each have been formed to inspect the rain water harvesting (RWH) system at these complexes and ensure that they are properly functioning.
"We have formed teams who will conduct inspection of all the large residential complexes in the city. The teams have to submit a report by Thursday evening and they must ensure that the rain water harvesting system at these societies is properly functioning. The move is aimed at raising the ground water levels through rain water harvesting," said Tandon.
The officer further said that all the residential societies must abide by the rules.
"At the time of acquiring completion certificate (CC) of any residential society, they must implant a proper rooftop rain water harvesting system. We have directed the teams to conduct an inspection of these and check their functioning. If the RWH site is not found working, a time of seven days will be given to them to make sure that it functions properly," added Tandon.
