Water Woes of Gauthami Enclave in Kondapur

High temperatures are a problem in the city thanks to concretization. Similarly, the water problem is a given for many living in the city. One such area happens to be Gauthami Enclave in Kondapur. The colony has been facing water problems for the past five years.


The colony has been having chronic water problems and nearly 2500 families reside in the Enclave. The residents complain that the officials remain unmoved by their plight. Despite several requests, the government has done little to ease their plight.


The residents also came up with 27 rainwater harvesting pits to deal with the problem and increase the groundwater table in the area. But that hasn’t helped too. The government supplies water only seven times a month for about 30 to 40 minutes. The amount of water received is very less, rue the colony residents. 


While the Enclave does have some functional borewells, there is a dearth of drinking water many a time. They feel that despite living in a developed area, they have to shell out money to buy drinking water. They are also miffed that a lot of money has to be set aside each summer for water tankers.


They pay around Rs 2500 to Rs 4000 per tanker. And they get two tankers once in 3 days while the requirement is for 15-20 tankers. Since there are 30 blocks, each block requires two tankers on average. 


Some residents have moved out of the Enclave as they were done with dealing with the perennial water crisis.
