CCC, CWASA to ready DPP by this year

Our Correspondent


Chittagong, May 12: Chittagong City Corporation and Chittagong WASA have planned to prepare a detailed project profile (DPP) on the sewerage and drainage master plan for approval of the government as soon as possible.

Chittagong City Mayor AJM Nasir Uddin said this at a joint meeting on the finalisation of the sewerage and drainage master plan at KB Abdus Sattar auditorium of the CCC Thursday morning.

Chittagong WASA (Water and Sewerage Authority) chairman Prof Syed Md Nazrul Islam, managing director Engineer AKM Fazlulla and CCC chief engineer Lt Col Mohiuddin Ahmed, among others, also spoke.

Aqua institutional expert Dr Khondakar Azaharul Haque presented a concept paper on the master plan in the meeting.

Chittagong City Corporation and CWASA have already signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to implement separate sewerage and drainage master plan at an estimated cost of Tk 100 billion to be funded by the World Bank (WB).

About water-logging problem, the mayor said, "We all know that unplanned urbanisation, greenhouse effects, rise of sea level, grabbing of canals and drains by dishonest house builders and lack of awareness of the common people are main reasons for water-logging."
