    BWSSB mandates strict adherence to rainwater harvesting practices

    Move against household water being directly connected to sewerage system

    Effective from June 10, BWSSB will impose fines on households

In a recent directive aimed at improving water management in the city, BWSSB has mandated strict adherence to rainwater harvesting practices. This measure comes in response to the prevalent issue of household water being directly connected to the sewerage system, which leads to drainage overflow during the rainy season.

To address this, households with unauthorized sewer connections are now subject to fines. Residents have been given a 15-day grace period, starting today, to ensure proper connections to rainwater drainage systems. This move is part of a broader initiative to mitigate waterlogging and improve the efficiency of the city’s drainage infrastructure.

Effective from June 10, the BWSSB will impose fines on households found diverting rainwater into the sewer system illegally. This decision was announced by BWSSB Chairman Ram Prasath Manohar, following directives from Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar.

The enforcement of these regulations underscores the city’s commitment to sustainable water management and the prevention of drainage system overloads during the monsoon season.

Residents are urged to comply with the new guidelines to avoid penalties and contribute to the city’s efforts in maintaining a robust and efficient water management system.
