Illegal Water supply and throwing waste into the river.

As a serious threat to drinking water supply, private suppliers choose to take filthy water from ponds and rivers to supply in many parts of the Navi Mumbai city. These water bodies have now become nothing less than a waste bin, containing all types of  filth and remaining, which makes the city life miserable. As per the rules,taking water from ponds for drinking supply is illegal.

A permanent motor is fixed on the bridge near to Khargar Sec-12, C-1 plot. Each water tanker come and take water from the river by motor. This water is suppliedin many parts of city without proper filtration or purification.

Earlier, such illegal activities have reported from other parts of the city. The Panvel Post has revealed the illegal taking of water from the Murbi Pond in Kharghar Sec-19. Authorities had not moved a step further to solve the problem. Many of the residents are not aware of where this water comes from.

Wastage dubbing is another important problem that need immediate attention. Residents found its an easy way to throw wastes into the river. But it in turn makes severe health problems for those  resides near to it.

Vishnu Gore, a resident of Kharghar Sec 12, Says “we use to sell fishes, that caught from the river and other ponds, for our daily bread. But now it’s become difficult for us to catch fish, as the river is filthy and aquatic creatures found it difficult to live here. It has also caused a drastic decline in the number of fishes in water bodies.”

Frankee Chacko, a resident of Sec 12 Kharghar, said “people should avoid throwing wastes in water bodies, as Cidco is providing enough waste bins and are collecting it routinely.”

Sruthi Divekar, a resident of Sec 12 Kharghar, said those who take water from filthy water bodies for drinking water supply should be punished. These private water suppliers should be controlled by legal measures.”

Cidco PRO, Mohan Ninave, said that “we never allow water suppliers to take water from ponds. But if such illegal activities happen, police would take strict actions.” Managing garbage and controlling health issues come under the health department. Dr. B. S. Bhavaskar, Head of health department promised to take all possible actions to control illegal activities and maintain the beauty of the pond.
