Just after a little rain, the Dhaka City gets submerged making it extremely
difficult for the dwellers to move around. It is the same old story
every year during the monsoon, which just started and will stay for
quite sometime. The City Corporation is doing something useful about
the problem we hope.
rid of faulty wires
Faulty wires can be very dangerous during the rain. If exposed to water
something there is a higher chance of fire generated from electrical
sources. For a safer household, always check electric wires for leakage
or other faults.
rain and umbrellas
It would be wise to keep an umbrella in your bag. It could be a great
help on one of those occasions of sudden rain.
With the arrival of the rainy season, experience of living in water
logged city is back. Ordinary people like us can do a lot to make things
better. Starting from the para level, we can clean the drainage system
around our house, which will make the stagnant water flow faster. Cleaning
garbage and debris from the streets would also help. We can stop littering
as well. All sorts of trash blocks the storm sewer line. Keeping the
storm sewer line open is the most important thing if you do not want
your area submerged in water. It is easy to achieve only if we could
unite with our neighbours.
your water Reservoir
Our brilliant sewage system means that water rises above certain levels
whenever it rains. Water reservoir tanks are often built into garages
or ground level. What happens is that the water from the sewage pipes
may enter your reserve tank and you will end up drinking the water that
has seen everything from dead cows to dead everything else. Raise the
lip surrounding the cover of the tank. Also add purifying tablets every
once in a while.
A reminder again about open manholes. It can be very dangerous so mark
the open manholes in your surroundings. To the people of City Corporation,
would you please do something about them!
