now sewage from delhi to be treated
About half a dozen drains empty into Noida every day. These drains flow from New Ashok Nagar and other areas of Delhi adjacent to Noida. The sewage would be channelized to the STPs soon after it enters the city to prevent pollution further downstream.
"So far, we have been unable to check the pollution caused by these drains. The Authority has been fielding complaints about air pollution," said Samakant Srivastava, PE (Jal), Noida Authority.
Officials said the waste water flowing through the drains also contaminates the city's groundwater sources. Noida has been categorized as a critically polluted area by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), and the untreated sewage plays a major role.
