Take a look at the Gangajal project
The proposal to bring 85 cusecs of Ganges water from the Upper Ganges Canal (Hapur) was first made in 2005 and the water supply network was prepared in the Greater Noida region between 2012 and 2014 After the year 2017, construction works of 23 km pipeline from Dehra to Jaitpur, sewage treatment plant and intake (initial treatment plant) in Dehra were started. The 7.4 km Dehra pipeline was to be constructed on Department of Irrigation land. Which the authority has completed by 2018. In front of it, the pipeline was laid by taking land from NTPC.
Pipeline laying works under the Delhi-Howrah railway line near Palla have taken place. The Gangajal reached the Palla WTP in December 2021, crossing the pipeline under the Eastern Perimeter Highway. Meanwhile, some farmers sat on a dharna at the WTP in Palla, due to which the work stopped.
On the instructions of CEO of Greater Noida Authority and Divisional Commissioner of Meerut Surendra Singh, ACEO Aditi Singh after talking to the farmers ended the dharna on July 1 and then work on the project started. In the first week of September, the water of the Ganges had reached the main reserve thread at Jaitpur.
