GHMC to delink sewage stormwater pipelines
Hyderabad: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is making arrangements to de-link sewage and storm water pipelines. A survey has identified the areas where storm water and sewage water are merging.Officials proposed 20 works at a cost of Rs 3.44 crore as part of the first phase. Several colonies and bastis get flooded with just a minimal rain.
A majority of areas are in fear of being inundated when flood water mixed with sewage water starts overflowing. Some areas witness knee-deep water loggings. GHMC and Water board decided to sort this issue by constructing separate pipeline for sewage water.Delinking works will be taken up in Santosh Nagar, Kukatpally, Karwan, Musheerabad, Jubleehills, Uppal, and Khairatabad areas soon. Some areas in Old City are equipped with a proper storm water management system but lack of sewerage system.
