Nellore: Irrigation department has been asked to take out a scientific study to establish a channel directly from Nellore tank to Pennar River to prevent submerging of Nellore city in future.

Many parts of Nellore including some posh areas were inundated during the heavy rain from November 15 and officials had a tough time in pumping out the water from the marooned areas, especially those located close to Nellore tank.

Urban development minister, Dr P. Narayana, who inspected all the affected areas along with officials, advised the irrigation engineers to prepare designs for a direct channel between Nellore tank and Pennar river to prevent flood threat to Nellore city in future.

Meanwhile water started receding from the inundated areas such as Mansoor Nagar and Parameswari Nagar following steps taken by the Nellore Municipal Corporation officials under the supervision of minister Narayana and mayor Abdul Azeez.

Both of them stay put in affected area for the last five days and mobilised men and material for the operation. People of affected areas thanked the minister and mayor for working round the clock on Tuesday when they inspected the areas.
