Hyderabad, July 27:With complaints pouring in all from quarters about rampant dumping of Construction and Demolition (C&D) debris in River Musi, especially near Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has commenced clearing the waste from the river. As per preliminary estimations prepared by the civic body, nearly 12 lakh metric tonnes has been dumped, over the months, at various points in the river channel criss-cross the city for more than 57 kms.
Tthe C&D waste has accumulated in heaps at Chaderghat, Wahednagar, Durganagar (Amberpet mandal), Chaderghat bridge (Himayathnagar mandal), Shivaji Nagar (Nampally mandal), behind Darbar Maisamma temple (Charminar mandal), Teegalaguda and Moosarambagh (Saidabad), Jiyaguda Kamela (Rajendranagar mandal), Nagole bridge and Devendernagar (Uppal mandal) and Parvathpur (Medipally mandal).
Nearly 50 trucks and 10 earth movers have been pressed into service to clear the waste. Each of the truck has been assigned to daily make four trips and clear about 200 loads of waste from the river, said a senior official from GHMC. Officials claim already one lakh metric tonne of waste has been cleared from different areas and transported to Fathullaguda, Jeedimetla and Kothwalguda.
Some cases have already been booked against persons responsible for dumping the waste in the river, the officials said. Also, measures such as mesh and retaining wall have been set up at some places along the river to prevent dumping.
