Mr. Indrapal Singh, Chairperson, PBMC along with Ms. Sheela Singh, Councillor ward no. 10, with engineering staff of PBMC visited South Point area near Laxminarayan temple, ward No. 10. The nearby area populace of the temple complained and disclosed that the sewage effluent may flow to the surface of the adjoining property which needs to be rectified for health reasons as well as functional reasons. It was observed that the temple septic tank was very close to the property line of nearby populace and the tank is situated at a higher elevation, consequently the waste may leak into nearby residents’ yards. The septic effluent must be disposed of on the property from which it originates and it must be in a significant way to avoid health peril. Keeping in view of the insanitary nuisances, health hazards and in order to prevent the spread of disease, the Civic Chief directed the Engineering staff to provide a retaining wall for the convenience of the devotees as well as to the neighborhood to impede the flow of effluent. He further directed to complete this work as early as possible in the larger public interest.eries.
