Letter : Poor Drainage System - Gorkhapatra- Topic: DrainageNews

Whenever there is a heavy downpour for about half-an-hour or more, the streets of Kathmandu get inundated, which brings the traffic movement to a grinding halt. This has been a regular phenomenon for years, and the residents of the Kathmandu Valley have been habituated to this problem. As a result, the urbanisation process has been haphazard and unplanned, which has added more problems to the people and caused serious environment and health problems in the capital. It is high time the government and the concerned agencies paid serious attention to strictly implementing the building codes and maintaining a good environment in the city. The municipality, which is the leading development agency in the capital, must make extra efforts to make the capital healthier, environment-friendly and clean. read me
