Uyyakondan cleaning drive finds favour with residents

Image

After having taken up a campaign to revive the Mavadikulam, Thaneer, a voluntary organisation comprising young activists, has undertaken cleaning of the Uyyakondan canal, which is facing the brunt of urban pollution. The canal that takes its flow from the Cauvery cuts across Tiruchi and takes a blackish hue on the city stretch. It traverses about 69 kilometres between Pettavaithalai and Vazhavanthankottai tank, but is subject to heavy urban pollution, especially between Puthur and Senthaneerpuram. The canal has an ayacut area of over 32,000 acres and feeds 36 tanks.

Major open drains flow into the canal in at least 11 places between Cantonment and Ariyamangalam apart from a number of small drains carrying sewage from hotels, commercial establishments, and houses. Sewage from several households and even hospitals could be seen let out directly into the canal. A large number of households in these thickly-populated areas are not connected to the underground drainage system. The squalor and stench, emanating from streams of drains, not only make for an eyesore, but a health hazard too.

As the canal is fast turning the city’s Cooum, young volunteers of Thaneer have started clearing garbage and debris that are dumped along the banks of the canal between the Uzhavar Sandhai and Azhvarthoppu over the past couple of weekends. “We have started manual cleaning of solid wastes. Initially, we have identified the stretch from the Uzhavar Sandhai, and we will move on gradually,” says Vinothraj Seshan, who has been coordinating the effort.

Conceding that the task is huge, Mr. Seshan, an embryologist by profession, says there is a perception among many city residents that the canal is a drain and there is a need to change this. “Even as we were cleaning we could see people dumping garbage. But we hope to bring about a change through fieldwork, and the campaign will go on till we achieve this,” he says.

Already the public response to the initiative has been good. “People come forward to join on seeing us work. Many youth, college students and employed, are offering to chip in. We have talked to the corporation and Public Works Department officials, and they have offered to support our initiative,” he says. Thaneer plans to create a walkway on the stretch near the Uzhavar Sandhai grounds by raising small plantation to prevent dump. The organisation plans to deploy machines later this week to clear debris on the stretch before moving on downstream to Palakkarai.

Meanwhile, Uyyakondan Padukkappu Kuzhu (Uyyakondan Protection Committee), comprising a host of civic and residents welfare organisations, launched an awareness campaign on Sunday to prevent pollution of the canal. A group of members of the committee along with officials of the PWD and the civic body distributed pamphlets among residents in Thennur, Anna Nagar, Azhvarthoppu, and Bheema Nagar urging the people to desist from dumping garbage and open defecation. The committee also petitioned the Collector last week seeking steps to check the pollution of the canal.

Three Tichy parks to be renovated

TRICHY: There is no dearth of public parks in Trichy city, though the area of open places has dwindled due to urbanisation. Unfortunately, most parks within the municipal limits are poorly maintained properly despite liberal release of funds from the civic coffer. In a belated move, Trichy Municipal Corporation is currently planning to renovate three parks in the city at a cost of Rs three lakh each.

The corporation has about 24 parks under its fold. Of these, Thiraviam Pillai Park on Kallar Street, Ranganathan Park on Berangi Road and Lourde Samy Park on EB road will spot a new look soon.

The residents along Kallar Street no longer see Thiraviam Park as a place of leisure anymore. The park is always buzzing with activity as many small commercial establishments are open here. Besides, many use the park as a place for urination though a public lavatory is close by.

Chandra Bose, who stays near the park, said the corporation has been trying to renovate the park for a long time and makes announcements in a big way and conducts inspection periodically, but not a single stone in the park has been moved so far.

The Ranganathan Park is a favourite hub of anti-social elements who find its vast, unused playground fringed by compound wall convenient for their activities. Children no longer use the ground. "Though the planned improvement of parks is welcome news, they should be maintained properly after renovation," said Renuka, a local resident, adding "several nursery and primary schools are in the locality and if the parks are renovated and maintained properly they would serve the public well.

Parks that are located away from main roads are always in a poor shape. Ibrahim Park on West Boulevard Road is, however, an exception.

Cut the trees, we will plant twice as much, says Exnora

Karumandapam Exnora Flood Prevention Committee assured the highways department to plant twice the number of trees that may be needed to be felled for widening the Dindigul road stretch from Ponnagar junction to Karumandapam Koraiyar Bridge.

In a memorandum submitted to the Collector and the Superintending Engineer, Highways, C. Balasubramanian, secretary of the committee, said the road stretch should be widened 2.5 metres on both sides and all the tamarind trees on both sides should be cut.

Culverts

There are about half a dozen culverts carrying rainwater from one side to the other side in Karumandapam areas on this road through round cement pipes. These should be replaced by block / square concrete culverts.

During the execution of the project, all the sodium vapour light posts should be removed and placed on the median. Necessary vital road crossing areas for schools, colleges, market areas should be identified and clearly demarcated.

People in Tiruchi and Kanyakumari district are particular that their houses are in the midst of greenery. The same is not the case in places such as Madurai, Ramanathapuram and Dindigul where water is scarce,” says K. Sonai who runs Kumaran Nursery Garden at Vadipatti, a place frequented by buyers from Tiruchi and Kanyakumari district.
