Agroli Pond

In the heart of the Belapur, the official capital of Navi Mumbai, situated Agroli pond remain as a mess up. It has become important for the authorities to look into the issue, as it not only a garbage bin but also a disturbance to residents.

The pond got its name from Agroli village, to which it was an integral part. The villagers use to take water for their daily needs from the pond. As a part of urbanization, the village and the pond came under sector-10 of Belapur node and itbecome the capital of Navi Mumbai. Under the city plan, Agroli pond was modified and beautified. Geographically the pond holds an important place, as it’s surrounded by important offices such as New Mumbai Police Headquarters, CIDCO and Konkan Bhavan and Central government offices.

Garbage dubbing is an important problem that the pond faces today. It is important to keep the ponds clean, as it raised health problems. Authorities blame the attitude of residents to throw wastes into water bodies. Residents of Agroli village use this pond for washing their clothes and even bath in it.

NMMC and CIDCO has taken various steps for modification of the pond. It has installed a fence around the pond and put underwater net to protect it from garbages. But residents remains to throw waste in the pond. City officials have also taken measures to boost security in the area, but is not implemented. They also planned to start fishing and boating in the pond. But can’t be implemented due to the filthy situation of the pond.

Vinod Solanki, a resident of  Belapur, said “we are fed up with the lip service of the authorities. Please implement the decisions that they took. It has become a civic shame to leave the pond filthy near to City headquarters.”

Ramesh Sutar, a resident of Agroli village, said “it is the responsibility of officials to clean and maintain the pond. We are not responsible for it. We never throw wastes in it. But I have seen many peoples coming in bikes and throw wastes into it.”

Ramesh Divekar, a resident of Belapur, said “government has taken many decisions to maintain and beautify this pond, as per the reports in the newspaper. But I haven’t seen any such developments in the pond and premises. It has become increasingly ugly and filthy. That even in middle of the city.”

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 clean the pond and its premises.
