The Municipal Corporation of Dehradun (MCD) has sent a letter to the general manager of Dehradun Smart City Limited (DSCL) concerning the waterlogging on roads and accumulated soil in the drains of the city due to the ongoing construction work under the smart city project. In the present time, when the district administration as well as the MCD are taking all possible measures to restrict the breeding process of dengue causing mosquitoes while regularly asking the public to prevent the accumulation of water in their premises, several nearby areas where the work of smart city project is under construction are filled with water. Taking cognisance of this situation, the chief municipal health officer Dr Kailash Joshi sent a letter to the management of DSCL. In this letter, Joshi said that due to the various ongoing construction works under the smart city project, the loose soil from these sites is flowing with water and getting accumulated in the underground drains which can choke the drains during the heavy rainfall. Besides this, the water accumulated in the potholes on roads can also boost the breeding of mosquitoes too, as stated in the letter. Therefore, Joshi has directed the officials concerned in the letter to fill the potholes in the Parade Ground area and clean the drains filled with soil due to the construction works.
