- RMC begins operations to avoid water clogging during monsoon
- SOP distributed amongst workers, says Mayor Ejaz Dhebar

Raipur: Caught off guard by the spells of rains that lead to waterlogging of large areas across the city, Raipur Municipal Corporation started pre-monsoon preparations.
Municipal Corporation has prepared a standard operating procedure to tackle waterlogging especially in low-lying areas and roads or lanes having no drains or poor drainage systems. The civic body claims to have completed the cleaning of 20 sewage drains before the onset of monsoon to ensure that there is no water logging in the capital.
Mayor Ejaz Dhebar said,” the civic body has drawn out a monsoon plan analysing the city’s sewage pattern to avoid waterlogging.” RMC has deployed workers according to the plan at every intersection of the roads to inspect blockages and do the needful for sustaining better flow. He informed that desilting of the clogged sewer lines will be carried out keeping all major pumping stations at pace.
According to IMD, the monsoon will hit the state by June 15. A delay of 5 days in monsoon 2021 was predicted by the Met department.
