Action sought against private apartment for ‘illegally’ laying sewage pipeline

Covai Post Network

Action has been sought against the owner of a private apartment building near Nanjundapuram for illegally laying a pipeline for sewage water into an irrigation channel (vaykkal) on goverment poramboku land.

According to sources, Parsn Sesh Nestle apartment in the city has illegally laid a sewage pipe from the apartment to the channel and later let it flow to the corporation’s sewage treatment plant (STP) in the area.

Based on an RTI reply obtained, former president of Licensed Building Surveyors Association S Kanagasundharam said it is illegal to lay the pipeline carrying sewage water and other waste.

Kangasundharam told The Covai Post that without getting necessary permission from the district administration and the corporation, Parsn Apartments has illegally let the sewage flow into the underground drainage channel.

The authorities had earlier granted it permission to let the sewage flow to its own treatment plant and not let it drain outside the premises.

The corporation facility can be used on paying a fee which has not been done in this case, says Kanagasundharam. “Officials at the district administration and the corporation should take action against the violators,” he adds.
