No more water logging issue: Faridabad soon to have silt free drainage system
| Monday | 12th April, 2021
The industrial city of Faridabad has a population of about 24 lakhs. There is a serious problem of sewer and rainwater drainage in the city. Sewer lines often overflow. Dirty water remains stored in the streets. The new drainage system will get the residents of the city rid of the dirty water logging on the streets of Faridabad this season.
Faridabad Metropolitan Development Authority (FMDA) has planned to make Faridabad silt free on the lines of Gurugram. Under the scheme, drainage lines are being laid in the city. During this time special care is being taken that after laying the line, no one should make a connection of sewer in them. Strict action has been taken against those who have done so.
The industrial city of Faridabad has a population of about 24 lakhs. There is a serious problem of sewer and rainwater drainage in the city. Sewer lines often overflow. Dirty water remains stored in the streets. On the other hand, the Municipal Corporation had laid down the drainage drainage lines in the sectors a few years ago, but due to lack of proper maintenance, people added sewer lines to get rid of the sewer problem. Due to this, both rain and sewer water get mixed.
Due to this, the drainage line is silted often during a year. The problem of waterlogging arises at various places in the city during the rains and monsoon season. Faridabad Smart City Limited is constructing new drainage lines (drains) on the lines of Gurugram on behalf of Faridabad Smart City Limited, to rid the city of waterlogging.
Faridabad Smart City Limited is laying a new drainage line in the city. Drainage lines are being constructed in such a way that no person can easily leave the sewer pipe in it. Large sewers will be cleaned. This will enable the drainage line to remain silt-free in the future.
Construction of drainage line for rainwater collected is going on. Sewers will be cleaned. So that there is no problem of overflow anywhere.
The action plan will be prepared for the project. According to this, "The green belt along the roads should be deepened one foot so that rainwater does not fill the road," said Dr Garima Mittal, Additional Executive Officer, FMDA
