There seems to be something seriously wrong with the water and sewage system that feeds the zone of Balakrishna Street, Dwaraka Colony and Brindavan Street and around.
Each area has had its problems in the past and much has been addressed. But now, Balakrishnan Street is witnessing sewage water pollution and things have gone so bad that residents staged a protest outside Metrowater’s local office on Brindavan Street.
The street has been at the severe end of civic problems – for almost two years the street lay dug up for various civic projects that dragged on and on. Now, the water/sewage lines seem to be contributing to leaks and pollution.
Says Ramaswamy, a resident of Brindavan Street, “WE used to have such problems and Metrowater set them right but Balakrishnan Street has had a bad time for some years now.”
