CUTTACK: To make the Millennium City clean, Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) is coming up with a modified and revised City Sanitation Plan (CSP).
CMC will prepare the CSP with technical support from National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) to bring improvement in the sanitation system of the city.
An eight-member NIUA team has made a preliminary discussion with CMC authorities regarding the preparation of the CSP. ‘’The CSP will address issues relating to solid waste management, drainage, septage, sewerage, toilet and other sanitation issues,’’ said CMC Commissioner Gyana Das. The NIUA would provide the CSP to CMC soon, he informed.
Representatives of NIUA, who will visit and inspect different places in the city, will also have discussion with JICA, drainage, PHED and other line department officials in order to gather information about the sanitation system of Cuttack. The NIUA team will also interact with citizens, office-bearers of different Puja committees and members of Peace committees to get information about the problems and difficulties facing the sanitation system.
According to NIUA officials, aspects like water supply, sanitation, solid waste management, health and environment will be considered while preparing the CSP of Millennium City.
‘’We will make a detailed study on these five aspects and prepare the CSP. We will also give suggestions for future plan after going through the existing sanitation system and present challenges,’’ said Jyoti Das, an official of NIUA.
