PROBLEM Inadequate drainage system Annual rain fall : 750 mm; Maximum intensity of rain fall in Hyderbad: 40 mm/hr; this year : 30 mm/hr Carrying capacity of existing drainage sytem : 12 mm/hr (i.e., only 1/3rd capacity) Surface run-off water drains into Major lakes; Nalas; Hussain Sagar; & Musi River Number of lakes drastically reduced & fore shore area encroached Hussain Sagar shrunk substantially
Hyderabad has a history of floods – 1908; 1930; 1962;1970; & 2000 Kirloskar consultants studied the problem and gave recommendations in 2003 Major causes for floods/inundation: • Inadequate drainage system • Construction of houses in flood absorbing tanks; foreshore areas of lakes etc. • Massive encroachments of nalas, tank beds etc., shrinkage • Dumping of debris & garbage into open nalas • Diversion of water courses to accommodate colonies • Increased run-off due to paving of surface • Reduced flood absorbing capacity of tanks breaches & overflow into low lying areas
Major flood prone areas: • Low laying area of Hussain Sagar; • Saroor Nagar Tank; • Errakunta; Balkapur; • Kawadiguda; Domalguda; • Ashok Nagar;Bhavani Nagar; • Ganaga Nagar; Begumpet; • Lunger House; Afzal Sagar; • Mallepally etc. Encroachers are both the cause and victims of flooding/inundation.
Kirloskar consultants identified deficiency of all sections of drainage system (more than 75% of deficiency found) Major flood prone nalas: • Hussain Sagar Surplus Nala - 1 • Balkapur Channel • Durgam Cheruvu Nala • Afzal Sagar Nala • Kishanbagh Nala • Old City Nala • Murki Nala • Saroor Nagar Surplus Nala
Improvements proposed: • Widening & deepening of nalas • Construction of retaining walls on both side of nalas • Removal of encroachments • Modification of cross drainage works • Regrading of storm water drainage system
Issues involved: • Cost of project (Modernization of the total system): Rs. 450 crores • Rehabilitation of poor encroachers & removal of encroachments • Removal of permanent/big constructions all along the nalas • Proper enforcement of WALTA. • Prevention of further shrinkage of tanks & lakes • Creation of awareness • Enlightened political support
