system of N.I.T., Old Faridabad and Ballabgarh was laid during
the period 1960-1970. The sewer system is normally designed
for the normal growth of population for a period of 30 years.
The rising graph of population of this industrial town of
the last 4 decades has been found many fold of what was expected.
The sizes of originally provided sewer lines have also reduced
because of continuous silting of the pipes. The sewer pipes
mainly R.C.C. pipes have also outlived their lives. With the
result, the sewer lines in many parts of these old three towns
need replacement with bigger diameter pipes. To take up this work
in phased manner. At present, 50% area of the total population is covered with
sewer system. MCF is mobilizing resources to meet the exponentially
growing demand of sewerage system in Faridabad.
