Rainwater. Sewage. Problem repeats in these Mandaveli colonies.

Pump. Pump. Pump.

That is what is going on in the inner streets that meet Devanathan Street in Mandaveli.

It is not just the rainwater that is cleared out now. It is water with sewage.

And this flooding has happened on a few occasions in the past when the rain is steady.

Residents say mere pumping of flood water and small repairs will not address the serious civic issues ; water has entered many a home on the ground floor here.

This is another colony in the Mylapore zone that needs attention long term for solutions to handle heavy rains.
