About 40 per cent of the construction of the reinforced concrete ground tank, which can store 100,000-gallon water, in the compound of Yangon City Hall on Maha Bandoola Road, Kyauktada Township, Yangon Region has been completed so far, reported the Yangon Region City Development Committee (YCDC).
“This ground tank is aimed to store rainwater and counter flooding. The rainfall led to sewer overflow in downtown areas (Sule Pagoda, Maha Bandoola Road and City Hall). That is why the tank will become a place to collect and store rainwater and a water pump will be installed either. This is the first-ever rainwater storage tank in Yangon. Upon completion of the tank, the urban community will not face flooding problems in the downtown areas,” said Daw Moe Moe Aye, an staff officer of YCDC’s Engineering Department (Water and Sanitation).
This tank is 70 feet long, 33 feet wide and seven feet deep.
Yangon downtown areas are inevitably flooded after heavy rainfall occurs.
It will be a temporary space to collect rainwater and water will be discharged through a five-foot drainage system inside Maha Bandoola Park to the outer bar (Yangon River).
The sanitation and drainage system will improve after the project. This project commenced on 21 November 2021 and it is slated to finish in the second week of January 2022, YCDC stated. — Pwint Thitsar/GNLM
