Vasai: In order to increase the water storage capacity, the work of dredging and dredging the Pazar lake has been started at Chandrapada, Vakipada of Naigaon East.
At Juchandra Vakipada in Naigaon East, villagers have created a seepage lake to supply water to Juchandra, Chandrapada, Vakipada areas. For the past many years, the residents of this area have been getting water supply from the same seepage lake. Juchandra village is supplied with water from this lake by the municipality, while water is being supplied by Gram Panchayat in Chandrapada, Vakipada. Due to day by day increasing population and increasing consumption of water, Pazar Lake has completely dried up. Due to the drying up of the lake, the problem of water scarcity has arisen in Chandrapada and Vakipada areas.
In order to avoid this kind of problem next year, the work of pumping the silt accumulated in the lake and deepening it as required was started. This work has been started from Wednesday. This work will increase the water storage capacity. Earlier in 2016, the lake was drained of silt. After that, once again the work of dredging and digging has been started.
Due to the growth of trees in this percolation pond, it had started to get exhausted. Therefore, the repair of the pond was very necessary. The administration has finally taken it up on the demand of the citizens.
