Gurgaon Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has chalked out an ambitious plan to give a new thrust to having better upkeep of the city’s green belts and parks in order to improve the city’s livability quotient.
As part of its plan ,GMDA will be laying a 50 km long pipeline across the city for supplying treated waste water for better maintenance of parks and green belts. This will be in addition to the network of over 100 km of treated wastewater pipelines already laid out in the city. This will be done by installing the high density polyethylene pipeline with hydrants by connecting them to the masterline of treated, already laid along major roads of the city These hydrants will be installed at a spacing of 30 meters. The treated water through the pipeline is meant to be used for the upkeep of green belts under GMDA and for horticulture and maintenance of parks in the areas falling under Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG).
Gurgaon generates 243 million liters of treated waste water per day and a part of it is already being used for different purposes like watering green belts and rejuvenation of water bodies through the existing network of pipelines. Like every other municipality in Haryana, MCG has a target to use at least 25% of treated water by 2022. Post-covid, when residents opt for green open spaces for health safety, GMDA’s plan , will help boost greenery, improving the overall livability, especially in New Gurgaon, This will in turn help in providing a fillip to Gurgaon real estate.
