DIPECHO Contributes on Reducing Water Logging Problems in Sylhet

In each year when monsoon sets in, water logging in many areas of Sylhet city and its suburbs was a common scenario for the dwellers that caused immense sufferings to them. Busy city roads used to go under water even after light to moderate rainfall due to lack of proper drainage system for long. Heavy rainfall sometimes caused the kitchen markets inundated. People at the markets had to wait for hours as most of the vehicles stopped running on the roads due to waterlogging.

Traders also shut down their shops as the roads in front of their shops got waterlog. Children missed classes, the poor suffered as they live hand to mouth. Life in the Sylhet city was unbearable.But things have changed now, Thanks to Sylhet City Corporation, District Administration and other concerned development agencies like Oxfam who joined their hands together to solve this problem.
