The residents of B.M.Sri Nagar here, especially those living between 9th and 12th cross roads, can hopefully look forward for a solution to the unbearable stench of sewage water which is making their life miserable since two years.

The Mysore City Corporation (MCC) Zone-5 Development Officer Mahesh and staff visited the area and took stock of the situation.

It was learnt that the underground drainage system of the said part of the extension was not connected to the main pipeline, thus allowing the sewage water to collect in a pit near Bharath Petroleum Depot resulting in an unbearable stench emanating from the pit. It has also become a good breeding ground for mosquitoes.

The residents of the area were said to have complained to MCC officials several times over the last two years but to no avail. Owing to intermittent rains last week, the problem became severe. Mahesh got the accumulated sewage water in the pit diverted to the storm water drain for the time being, assuring to lay pipelines and link it to the main UGD line soon.

Mahesh was accompanied by Engineer Lakshman Gowda and Corporator Ramesh.
