Civic issues, Features and Personalities of Navi Mumbai
1. Half century old water tank in dangerous condition.
2. Water tank planned and started construction 10 years before.
Once again the official lethargy of PMC is exposed from the dangerous conditions of water tanks and water supply in Panvel. Even top level officials would agree that municipality is unable to supply water in all areas of Panvel. Total four water tanks are serving Panvel to supply water for its needs. One of the tanks is in dangerous situation and construction of another tank is started 10 years before. Junior engineer and head of water supply department, R. R. Thayade, blames the in availability of fund for construction as reason for water problems in the city.
Water tank situated behind the bus stand is wasting water due to leakage and damage in many areas. This tank is supplying water in Panvel for about half century and is instructed to tear down by experts, as many leakages and major damaged found in the water tank. Even now the water tank is used in its full potential and seems to be very dangerous, as it situated highly populated area. Residents have started complaining about the situation long before about the leakage of water as well as destructive nature.
Construction of a new tank was started in 2003 and not yet completed due to problems happened between MJP (Maharashtra Jeevan Pradhikaran) and contractors. Now remaining works are completing by city Municipal Corporation. PMC was not able to complete the works and plans of a water tank that planned 10 years before. When contacted, PMC officials informed to complete the works of new tank by April end. But even after completing the new tank, PMC is not planned to tear down the oldest water tank.
Gladson Ydas, a resident of Panvel, said “water tank behind the Bus stand is in dangerous situation, as it is visible to be damaged in many areas. Good amount of water is wasted due to leakage in the tank. It shows the policy paralysis happened from the side of PMC. A water tank planned 10 years before is not yet completed.”
Water committee chairman of PMC, Anil Bhagat, said “new water tank will not be an alternative for old tank, as the new one is expected to supply water in deficiency areas. As demand in the city is increasing, old tank cannot be easily tear down. Deficiency in funds is the main impediment to built new tanks.”
