Engineering Department is constructing a reinforced concrete ground tank, which can store 100,000-gallon water, in the Yangon City Hall compound. So far, the construction project has been completed 80 per cent, it is learnt.
“This ground tank is aimed to store rainwater and counter flooding. The rainfall led to sewer overflow in downtown areas (Sule Pagoda Road, 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. Upon completion of the project, there will be no more floods during the monsoon season and people passing through the city will be able to travel conveniently in the rainy season,” said an official from the Engineering Department.
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 deep drainage system inside Maha Bandoola Park to the outer bar (Yangon River).
The sanitation and drainage system will improve after the project. This project was initiated on 21 November 2021 and it is scheduled to finish in January 2022, Yangon City Development Committee stated. — Ko Naing (Bago)/GNLM
