Faced with recurring water logging problems, particularly during heavy rainfall, locals took matters into their own hands in areas surrounding Labh Park-1 Society. Determined to alleviate the situation, residents initiated the placement of wooden planks strategically to deter people from traversing waterlogged areas, effectively reducing further damage. This proactive approach has deterred unnecessary foot traffic, thus minimizing additional water accumulation.

Moreover, recognizing the persistent drainage challenges across various city sectors, the Municipal Corporation has recently undertaken a substantial rehabilitation initiative. With an allocated budget of Rs. 100 crores, the Corporation aims to revamp a 32-kilometer stretch of antiquated drainage lines using three distinct methodologies. This comprehensive effort is poised to enhance drainage infrastructure and mitigate future waterlogging incidents throughout the city.
