Chennai Rains

The stagnation of water in Ambattur, Velachery and Medavakam has proved the basic flaws existing in city planning. Proper embankments for water bodies and good flood water drainage systems are the need of hour. While laying tar roads, care should be taken to allow rain water to percolate into the ground. The above said precautions should be taken in the low lying areas which are the badly affected during rains. It is high time that authorities learned not to build houses on the dried water bodies. City planners should learn the lessons from these Chennai rains else the adversities could be even more serious, the next time.
