Chennai Corporation — Drainage Block

34 Reviews
I suggest that periodical flushing out manholes in night time with a jet of water will remove blocks if any.This method,I wonder whether corporation of chennai is aware or not.Probably they are mentally dead and physically alive

Resident’s of Brinthavanam & Venkateswara Nagar
Maniammal Street, Rajarajeswari Nagar, Madipakkam, Chennai - 600 091, (Ward No.188), one end is totally affected by free flow of drainage water on street. Hence, enormous mosquitoes have been developed day by day with bad smell, as well disease spreads and give vomiting sensation always. Especially, Door No.2/1034 and D.No.2/1044 are freely passing their drainage water continuously for many years on this road, without control. Two rowdy brothers tenant of D.No.2/1034 apartment (ground floor) threaten street fellows and passing public, when asked this misuse. Ladies and public are fearing about these brothers. Their two wheeler No. is TN07 AQ 9904. They give torture to that street. Also, the road's same one side is totally blocked from traffic and hence vehicles / school students / pedestrians could not pass on the road. Ambulance, emergency vehicles could not enter into street on that end for urgency. Please take immediate action for health matter and arrogance.

Problem with drainage in Velachery
Hello Sir,

I am a resident of No.15B, F1, Bhuvaneswari Nagar Ist Main Road, Velachery, Chennai. We are staying here for past 4 years and Velachery being called the heart of the city now, I would like to list out some of the problems we face.

1) Till date there is no Drainage or Metro water connection given, though we have paid all the taxes till date. Please note that we do NOT even have bore water to use and hence we buy the corporation metro water and use it.
2) The road is also in very bad condition with stagnating water and mosquitoes.
3) Intolerable problem is every day mostly in the evening, we face very bad smell of drainage with an intolerable odour passing on. This bad smell really troubles us more with elderly people and children at home getting affected with respiratory system issues like Asthma, wheezing etc. The moment this smell passes on, wheezing problem gets started.
4) A small -Chennai Managaratchi park area is there in front of our flats, but nobody is maintaining this and it has become the home for the cows, buffaloes and the street dogs.

This has already been raised by our nearby resident of same area, but till date there is no response nor any action taken at all. I strongly believe that you will go through the issues I have listed and take necessary steps to resolve these. I again request you to take necessary action on this and save us.

Thanks in anticipation

There is frequent or always drainage overflow .we have already complained many times there is no response, but its still we have the same problem .. The half of the road is very low, so drainage water is full in the road only, we always are closing the door and windows to avoid the foul odor. I have ailing small children who is bed ridden and we are afraid this unhygienic condition may create more illness who are residing nearby too.
We Hope that corporation will take immediate action in this regard
