| Wednesday | 12th June, 2019
KV Navya ByExpress News ServiceCHENNAI: More than a year after the plan for the construction of the additional sewage pumping station with the capacity of 10 MLD (million litres per day) at Nilamangai Nagar in Adambakkam was approved, work will finally begin this week.
The capacity of the existing pumping station is 24 MLD and the total number of connections proposed by the Alandur municipality in 2000 was for 26,000 dwelling units.
So, 24 MLD pumping station was sufficient.
“Sewage from Alandur, Adambakkam and Nanganallur flow into this single storage well which is not enough to take the load, leaving sewage stagnant in these areas during rains.
“Every rainy season, the areas around the pumping station become a breeding ground for mosquitoes whenever the sewage overflows.
