Mehdipatnam: Improper manhole pipeline by Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB) has been bothering the residents of Falcon Enclave and commercial dwellers on Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital road. The sewage has been flowing on the road since the past three months and it continues to flow even after pumping and cleaning was being done by the HMWS&SB staff.

“The stink from the sewage water accumulated on the road parking space is not only affecting the pedestrians but the owners of the shops are facing health issues. This has been taking place for months even after the officials have used sewage cleaning vehicles to clear the line,” said a resident of building

Mobile store owner, Mohammed Shaukath Ali said, “The sewerage water is a trouble to our business as customers hesitate and mostly avoid visiting our stores due to the pond of sewerage created in front of our stores.” Officials of HMWS&SB continue to blame the apartment management for improper pipeline on the road and apartment management keeps blaming the officials for not doing their job.

Khurshid Ali president of the Falcon Estate said, “The problem is not because of choking, it is because the change in pipeline. The whole pipeline was changed during the road-widening project that was undertaken and the sewerage pipes of all the buildings in this area were connected to the narrow line laid by HMWS&SB. To solve this problem permanently they have to change the whole pipeline.”

HMWS&SB general manager of Gudimalkapur division, Vinod Bhargava said, “Earlier the pipeline was connected towards the other side of the road, when the new road was laid the pipeline was damaged internally. To resolve this we have come up with an agenda, 75 metres of new pipeline will be laid and the work will start within this week.”
