AMC Undertakes Dual-Pronged Project To Address Underpass Flooding, Water Scarcity

| Updated: December 31, 2022 13:19

Nearly 10 underpasses in Ahmedabad, that often hit headlines for getting flooded during monsoon, will now have percolating wells near them. Percolating wells help improve the groundwater table.

Through this pilot project, the AMC hopes it will not only channelise rainwater but also address the depleting groundwater reserves in the city. Work has begun on the first percolating well near the Akbarnagar underpass.

It should be noted that the underpasses already have main sumps installed as part of the design. Sumps collect surface runoff water. Since at present a lot of the rainwater gets wasted, the idea is to connect the water discharge line of the sumps to the percolating wells built on the land close to the underpass.

Such percolating wells, though expensive, manage water inflow from various sources. At a foot wide with 800 feet deep, it is hoped, that the dual-pronged project addresses water flooding and scarcity in one blow. 

Among underpasses planned to benefit from the project are Income Tax, Mithakhali, Shahibaug, Usmanpura, Nirnaynagar, Sardarnagar and Madalpur.
