Completion of Flood Preventive/Remedial Works before monsoon starts in Mumbai.

This petition had 255 supporters

Mumbai, a low-lying city in Maharashtra is subjected to intermittent spells of intense rains every year during the annual monsoon season. Consequently, Mumbai gets flooded every year causing terrible damage to both life and property.

However, after studying the underwater stormwater drainage system first established in the 19th Century, I have found out that the major problem of flooding in Mumbai can be minimised to such an extent that only extremely heavy rains will cause problems to Mumbaikars. The authorities will have to conduct their allocated duties like de-silting, clearing of nullahs, etc well within their deadlines. Further, only 6 of the 8 sanctioned pumping stations have been set up in Mumbai. These are strategically placed at the most flood-prone spots in Mumbai so as to clear out water as soon as it starts flooding. So the authorities also have to make sure that the 2 remaining pumping stations are completed as soon as possible.

It is with your help that we can persuade the MCGM to carry out the stipulated preventive/remedial works before June every year so that the prolonged problem of flooding in Mumbai can be minimised. Signing this petition will show that the locals are genuinely affected by the devastating floods that strike the city each consecutive year and they would want to go to great extents to reduce the damage caused by the floods.

Please help me reach my target so that this underlying issue can be brought forth into the limelight and the authorities working for the welfare of the city in this aspect.
