INDORE MUNICIPAL Corporation (IMC) has asked Treasure Island management to set up a proper drainage system at the multiplex on MG Road and submit a report to that effect within a week.
The letter sent by IMC Chief Health Officer Dr A K Puranik states that the design of drainage system and sewage treatment plant set up at the commercial complex is unscientific and needs upgradation to avoid mishap.
An on the spot inspection conducted by IMC Health Department officials today revealed accumulation of sludge, silt and smelly waste in the chambers of treatment plant. They found that obnoxious smell and poisonous gases emanating due to flawed structure had spread to underground parking. The underground tank constructed for drainage too was found covered with layers of smelly waste.
“This is a threat to public health. You will be held responsible if air and water pollution reaches an alarming scale due to leaks or cracks in the tank and chambers,” Puranik remarked in the letter to Treasure Island engineer Mukesh Acharya.
IMC has charged the multiplex management with adopting temporary drainage system and asked it to install wider drainage lines that merge with main sewerage system. Recommending formation of effective sewage disposal system to prevent pollution of surroundings, the Corporation has asked the management to produce no objection certificate if it has received any from MP Pollution Control Board, IMC Water Works and Drainage System and Public Works Department.
Municipal Health Department conducted the inspection following complaints made by residents’ welfare societies of Tukoganj area. The residents alleged that they were falling sick due to supply of foul, smelly water. Corporation has collected the samples of piped water and sent them for tests.
