The Municipal Corporation of Dehradun (MCD) has commenced the task of cleaning drains in the city and according to the officials it will be finished by the end of this month. Due to the monsoon season approaching, the corporation is planning to finish the work of cleaning drains as soon as possible. The MCD officials informed that 70 employees of the corporation have been working to clean the drains since the last month to prevent water logging during rainy season. According to the MCD employee Rajbeer Chauhan who is monitoring the work of drain cleaning, the process of tender invitation got delayed last month due to Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown that caused a setback in the cleaning process of drains too. He said that after a company got the tender, it started the work to clean big drains of the city from June 1. Currently, the drain cleaning task is being done on six drains of Dehradun, stated Chauhan. According to him, the work will continue till the rainy season begins here and if the rain does not occur in June, the work of cleaning drains will be finished by June 30. Talking about the management of silt and garbage recovered from the drains, he said that the garbage is sent to the waste management plant whereas the silt is dried before being dumped at the designated site.
