Patiala, July 12: The Municipal Corporation Patiala has been working tirelessly to minimize the water damage caused by the recent flooding in the city. Under the leadership of Commissioner Aditya Upal and Joint Commissioner Naman Markann, teams have been working around the clock to drain standing water, clean sewage lines, and spray anti-larvae medicine to prevent the spread of mosquitoes.

Drainage of Standing Water

The teams have drained standing water from six colonies, including New Mahindra Colony, Pathak Vihar, Bhutnath Mandir, Tej Bagh, Muslim Colony, and Purana Bishan Nagar. They have also thrown out water from the sewage lines in four colonies using jetsuck machines and engines.

Cleaning of Sewage Lines

The teams have cleaned sewage lines in Gopal Colony, Chhota Araimajra, Hira Bagh, and Rishi Colony. They have also conducted a cleaning campaign in these water-affected colonies to remove any debris or contaminants.

Spraying of Anti-larvae Medicine

The teams have sprayed anti-larvae medicine at Model Town Mathura Colony near State College, Tagore Theater, Prem Bagh Palace, Mahindra College, Polytechnic College, State College, and Bikram College. This will help to prevent the spread of mosquitoes, which can carry diseases such as malaria and dengue.

Collection of Drinking Water Samples

Here are some tips for residents of affected areas:

  • Boil water before drinking it.

  • Use mosquito repellent.
  • Report any standing water to the Municipal Corporation.
