Cleaning storm water drains first priority

Karachi, June 22, 2018 (PPI-OT): DMC Central is going to launch a storm water cleaning campaign from today. The cleaning of rain drains will be the first priority. The chairman has decided to keep the DMC Central cleaner during the upcoming monsoon rains, but the main problem is the typical attitude of the people and garbage mafia etc. They dispose trash and garbage in drains instead of putting it in dust bin made and provided by the DMC administration.

This attitude not only block the flow of water and choke the drains but also make them a special Kachra Kunddi that is filled with plastic shopping bags and other dirty things. Should rain falls in such a situation, the rain drains will overflow and the residential and commercial area will present a picture of dirty water ponds. Therefore, Chairman DMC Central has commanded his men to clear all the rain drains without further wastage of time.

However, the cleaning work, as usual, is in progress and the men power and Machineries are cleaning the rain drains running in front of the Karachi Medical and Dental Hospital at Rasheed Turabi road, North Nazimabad. Additionally DMC Chairman requested water commission to ban plastic bags and instead cotton /paper bags may be promoted so that it can’t block drainage system and can be recycled. He added that the storm water drain become sewerage water drain, therefore, KWSB must uplift their own system.
