With a little bit of shower yesterday, we decided to review the monsoon preparations against flooding. The main storm water - ie surface run off water - of New Town comes through the Ghuni Pas Canal. It starts from near the City Centre II location and comes to discharge the inflow into Bagjola canal near Action Area I. However, during peak monsoon, the water level in Bagjola rises above that of the Ghuni Canal and so huge pumps have to be installed to pump out the water from Ghuni Canal to Bagjola Canal. Here is a picture of the construction site that engineers hope to finish before the onset of monsoons:
