Rain shows up civic problems

RainRains through the past three days are showing up the civic problems they may pose in Mylapore neighborhoods. Saturdays sudden and massive shower led to flooding in many streets. As this photo shows – a flooded Bawa Road in Alwarpet after 5.30p.m.

On many streets where there are no drains, water was stagnant on the sides of the pavements. In one end of C P Ramaswamy Road, the water flooded the small TANGEDCO junction box.

In streets which have been cemented and the sides left uncovered, the rainwater creates a slushy section – this is a new civic problem that must be addressed.
