HUDA not to allow use of tap water for parks in Gurgaon
With an intention to save water this summer, Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) has ordained the horticulture department to place a full stop on using tap water to nourish parks in Gurgaon.

HUDA has told the horticulture department to rather use the sewage water for the same. According to HUDA, this will save 12 lakh litres of drinking water every day and thus, will help in increasing the water supply significantly in the city. The concerned authorities feel the sewage water will be sufficient for the sustenance of the parks.

“The service will begin in few months as we are in the last stages of the concerned project. We have been working on the Sewage Water Plant and laying the pipelines from last few months. The project will begin in next few months. We will also install swings in all the parks to make them more functional,” said V K Nirala, Executive Engineer of HUDA's Horticulture Department according to a report by The Times of India.

Gurgaon houses 402 parks at present and have been using tap water on a regular basis. The sector parks in the city have been the worst victims of water shortage which also included The Aravalli Biodiversity Park.

An alternative water pipeline is expected to solve the water crisis in the city in addition to take care of the sector parks in Gurgaon. Majority of the parks in the city dons a dishevel look and thus the authorities aims to give them an much needed touch-up.
