Is rainwater flooding in your area’s streets and roads when it rains? Then you may want to consider tapping that water and help raise the groundwater level in the area.
A community body in R A Puram has done it – spending about Rs.40,000 on sinking two recharge wells in two streets. The MLA witnessed the work and hopes to implement and support similar projects which are critical to a colony.
If you intend to sink recharge wells along the street corners or inside storm water drains ( they must not carry sewage), you may approach the MLA to help get a permit from Chennai Corporation for such work in a public space.
The MLA says he also has plans to sink recharge wells in some areas of Mylapore.
