New Delhi: Na­tional Green Tri­bunal-ap­pointed Ya­muna mon­i­tor­ing com­mit­tee on Wednes­day asked the govern­ment agen­cies to pro­vide a de­tailed list of the num­ber of unau­tho­rised colonies and the con­di­tion of their sew­er­age sys­tem. The panel has sought spe­cific in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing the pop­u­la­tion of these colonies, the sta­tus of their in­ter­nal sew­er­age sys­tems, per­cent­age of house­holds con­nected to the net­work, among oth­ers.

“The four agen­cies — ir­ri­ga­tion and flood con­trol de­part­ment, DSIIDC, PWD and DJB — are in pos­ses­sion of valu­able data that needs to be col­lated and made avail­able to the mon­i­tor­ing com­mit­tee,” the panel told the agen­cies at a meet­ing on Wednes­day.

The com­mit­tee is tasked with find­ing an im­me­di­ate and rel­a­tively short-term so­lu­tion to avoid sewage flow­ing into the storm wa­ter drains. “The colony-wise di­men­sion of the house­holds can en­able es­ti­ma­tion of the to­tal sewage flow­ing into storm wa­ter drains,” it said.

The di­rec­tions came while dis­cussing the need for clean-up of over­flow­ing sewage wa­ter of a 2km stretch from Man­gal Bazar to Mehrauli-Badarpur Road near Sangam Vi­har.
