Stagnation of sewage, the price for development of Porur

The price of haphazard development is paid by residents of BHEL Nagar and Amman Nagar, who have endured a persistent water stagnation problem for over 10 years now. Well into the summer, buffaloes find a cool haven in the water and sewage stagnant inside the colony. "The water dries for a few months from June or July. Since the layout of over three acres area was occupied from 1992, residents have had to deal with stagnant water two or three feet deep for six to eight months a year,' said Adhi Narayanan, Secretary, BHEL Nagar and Amman Nagar Association.
