NOIDA's Mission Ganga Jal

Come July 15 and Noida residents will get 100% Ganga water supply for potable use.
The Noida authority recently gave its approval to commissioning of Phase II of the Rs 500 crore Ganga Jal Project, which started in 2009.
The laying of pipelines will be completed by the end of June following which we will commence testing, officials said. With this, Noida will become the first city in the NCR to get 100% Ganga water, not mixed with groundwater, for the entire city’s needs.
Mission Ganga Jal was first started by the Noida Authority in 2009. For this, pipelines were laid via Masuri, Dasna in Ghaziabad along the upper Ganga canal all the way to Noida. A water reservoir was also built in Sector 65 to distribute water to different city sectors.
The project’s Phase II was to begin operations in June this year but got postponed because of delay getting necessary permissions from the Railways, which had not given its approval to the UP Jal Nigam to lay pipes near ABES College in Ghaziabad.
The city’s water requirement at present stands at 216 MLD, out of which 48 MLD is being supplied by the project’s first phase. In the second phase, the Authority will procure 192 MLD from the Pratap Vihar water treatment plant.
“This additional supply will meet Noida’s entire water supply needs,” said Samakant Srivastava, project engineer, Noida Authority.
