DHA drainage system - The News - International(DrainageNews)

The awarding of the contract for setting up a comprehensive drainage system for Karachi's Defence Housing Authority (DHA) is a big step towards giving the area a much-needed and awaited facility. Last year's monsoons wreaked havoc in the area, with much of the DHA underwater for many days causing immense hardships and property damage. While it is heartening to know that a Rs750 million allocation has been made for the project, the DHA's board needs to undergo some structural and procedural changes to make it a more transparent and democratic body. As it stands, some areas of DHA are still affected by last monsoon's flooding, with swamp-like areas in empty plots providing breeding grounds of mosquitoes and various diseases. read me
