Sreejith Cheruvallil Renjith started this petition to Shri. G. Sudhakaran Minister for Public Works and Registration and

Division 17 of Kochi Corporation which is called Perumbaddapu , A part of Thripunithara assembly constituency is facing serious lack of proper  drainage Infrastructure for removing stormwater and household wastewater ( “sullage”) . This is causing a big environmental health issues. The water is poorly drained and that provide breeding sites for disease vectors. The pathogens in sullage are also polluting groundwater sources. The major concern of Poor Drainage is flooding, resulting in property loss and displacement of People. This is also damaging water supply infrastructure and contamination domestic water sources.

The major receiver of this drainage water being Pashni Thodu and Perumbadappu Back water but due to lack of proper drainage infrastructure the removal of storm water and household wastewater happens in a very slow pace which leads to water logging. Many bottle necks have been identified and many solutions suggested but this problem remains same and not solved for more than 20 Years.

We would hereby request your kind attention in this serious matter concerning many people’s healthy life and livelihood. This requires a great cooperation from PWD and Kochi Corporation as the entire process will require dredging of  Pasni Thodu, Connecting Corporation canal  to PWD canal , Diverting the drainage water flow to multiple receiver channels , Setting up expert Engineer panel etc.

As a Govt which works for the welfare and betterment of Common people please take up this issue and pass necessary orders so that we will not be flooded in rains next year.
