PMRDA to prepare development plan to check pollution of Khadakwasla Dam

There are 24 villages surrounding the Khadakwasla Dam, which supplies water to the city. There are over 100 resorts and restaurants in these villages. Construction activity is growing in these villages. There are no underground drainages in these villages, resulting in the direct sewage release into the dam water. This has increased pollution of the dam water, which can cause major hygiene issues in the future. In this background, The PMRDA should prepare a development plan regarding the sewage management and action should be taken against resorts and hotels violating rules and regulations. These directives were issued by Ajit Pawar in the review meeting. The PMRDA will prepare the development plan in the next two months, said Municipal Commissioner Vikram Kumar.
