• Network of canals forms the backbone for drainage in the town
  • Current network of open drains is about 25 — 30km in length and is inadequate to meet the present needs of the town
  • Drains are built arbitrarily without taking into account the run off
  • Majority of drains are encroached and/or silted up as private premises & public roadside drains do not have silt traps. The flat topography (slope of ground is in the range of 0 — 15 %) is causing difficulty in free flow
  • Flat slope and high water table (3 mts. below the ground) makes the town highly susceptible to water-logging especially during monsoon
