IN SAN THOME, the high road has always been a flooded area when it rains. The drains just cannot handle the flow and they are really old.
Now, the civic body is sinking some small wells along the pavement from the Doomingkuppam end and the San Thome Cathedral end – workers at the spot told us.
This will help draw in the flood water.
DEALING WITH FALLEN TREES during the monsoon is a problem that the civic body has to address in areas like R A Puram and MRC Nagar which has lots of trees.
The local area Asst. Engineer told Mylapore Times, “We have engaged private contractors who are available 24×7. Fallen trees will be removed immediately with the help of the contractors and the Corporation staff. At night, we have made arrangements to provide light using generators.
