Ganganahar Canal Closure in Ghaziabad-Noida to Last 18 Days
On October 24, the night of the event, Ganganahar will be closed. There will be cleaning for roughly eighteen days. On November 12th, this canal will subsequently begin to operate. The Ganga water facility is situated in Ghaziabad’s Pratap Vihar. From here, a pipeline delivers 50 cubic feet of water to several locations throughout Ghaziabad and 100 cubic feet of water to Noida.

How Ghaziabad Manages Supply with Tube Wells and Tankers
Five cusecs are given to Siddharth Vihar, twenty-three cusecs to the Vasundhara zone, fifteen cusecs to Indirapuram, and seven cusecs to the areas surrounding Indirapuram out of the fifty cusecs that make up Ghaziabad.

Supply Shortfall Looms with Reduced Ganga Water Availability
If we talk about Noida, then 240 MLD Ganga water is used to meet the requirement of 400 MLD of Noida. On normal days, about 200 MLD of Ganga water is available. In such a situation, 200 MLD is supplied from ground water. Even after running the tube at full capacity, there will be a shortage of about 60 MLD water due to lack of supply of Ganga water. Noida Authority has also issued proper numbers for this on which people can call and get a tanker.
