PCMC’s Thergaon Boat Club Strict On Safety

The Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation’s Thergaon boat club attracts people from Pimpri and Chinchwad on weekends and holidays. The facility has been provided by constructing a bund on the river Pavana four years ago.
A visit to the club revealed an array of life jackets ready for visitors. Life guards too were present at the facility. During the lean season the club operates one pedal boat with the capacity to seat two to four people and one six-seater motor boat. On crowded occasions, three more pedal boats are added.
Laxman Dongre, a lifeguard at the club, said,”Since the boating facility is on the Pavana river which is deep, we insist that people wear life jackets. We don’t allow them entry without one. We also constantly monitor people once they start boating and do not allow them to go far.” About 50 visitors avail of the boating facility every day.
