Ghatkopar in Mumbai gets award for best rain water harvesting project after record water collection in potholes
Failing to have been taken by the Bombay Supreme Court because of the large number of bumps that have formed on the city’s roads during last year’s monsoon, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is still not ready to handle the complaints.
But now, the BMC has a good reason not to hear the complaints. Ghatkopar, a highly congested area in eastern Mumbai, won the award for the best stormwater collection project in the world, due to the amount of water it could store in its potholes.
BMC workers pat their own backs, and why not. It is because of its extreme harshness as Mumbai won such distinctions. It takes effort and courage to ignore so many complaints and BMC workers have proven during times of calamity.
From time to time, a high-ranking BMC said, “We have always known that bumps can be used to store rainwater, which is why emergency never appeared to fill in. See how amazing the results are.
We have stored so much water in the Ghatkopar bumps, even if it does not rain at the levels planned for next year, we will have enough water to survive. ”
The journalist Falsification News met with the resident of Ghatkopar, Shwetank Srivastava and said: “The BMC is so kind and generous to its residents.
We have always thought that the bumps make the city slow down and discourage the burgeoning commerce of this subway city, but BMC has always had the biggest picture in mind. Show me a water catchment project that is better than what we have here.
Me and my other colleagues in the company who promised not to complain about bumps throughout the monsoon and we will take more pride in this maximum city. “
