Mumbai: Main pipeline obstructs storm water drain work in Hindmata
| Thursday | 16th May, 2019
AdvertisingThe storm water drain department of the BMC, which is working on augmenting the drainage system, has discovered a 600 mm diameter main water pipeline that stands in its way.
But with the water pipeline crossing the drain, we will either have to elevate it or divert.
The civic body has already completed 80 per cent of the work on the 950 m long storm water drain, but it has come across the water main line that supplies to Dadar-Parel areas.
In June last year, the BMC had prepared a three-fold plan to augment storm water drains covering 2.5 km along the Babasaheb Ambedkar Road to relieve it from flooding during the monsoon.
While the BMC had planned to finish the work in this part before the monsoon this year, with the water pipeline in its way, the area will not get relief even in the next monsoon.
