Construction debris pile up along lakes under corpn’s nose

Coimbatore: While the city corporation is speeding up the work to enhance the bunds of Periyakulam along the Perur Bypass, construction particles proceed to be deposited on the other aspect of the road.
“People could be noticed dumping particles along the road each other day. Corporation officials visit the place ceaselessly to check up on the continued work. But, they never took measures to remove the particles or forestall the polluters,” stated R Muthusamy, a commuter. “People used to dump construction waste along the lake bund earlier. Now as the work is happening, they've started to dump it on the other aspect.”

A equivalent scenario prevails along the Valankulam lake.

Disposal of particles has greater within the fresh months as the corporation has turned a blind eye to the violation, Ukkadam resident Sameer Ahamed told TOI. “A few years in the past, the corporation used to slap penalty on every occasion they catch automobiles disposing particles. Now, vehicles wearing particles may also be noticed from afternoon till midnight. Sometimes, corporation automobiles may also be noticed amassing the particles to fill potholes.”

The corporation should slap penalty and take hold of the automobiles that dump construction waste, stated Syed of Osai, an environmental organization. “Debris disposed in lakes occupy a substantial house, cut back the lake space and block typhoon drains when disposed along the roads. The corporation has arrange a number of collection centres around the city to assemble construction particles and has even arranged a automobile to assemble particles from websites. But the waste is still disposed in public puts, basically due to lack of understanding. Public should co-operate with the officials to conserve nature.”

Meanwhile, corporation commissioner K Vijayakarthikeyan stated that steps will be taken to streamline the waste disposal procedure. A tender will be referred to as quickly to construct a plant to recycle the particles, he added.
