Posted On July 23, 2018
CII CII-SR has initiated a major flagship project, “CII-SR Water Alliance”, conceptualized in partnership with the Government in Southern States. The Project is an outcome of the measures taken by CII post Chennai Floods 2015 under Tamil Nadu Flood Relief & Rehabilitation initiative, launched by the task force to prevent flooding and channelize the flow of water into structured streamlines. As a first step, we have initiated the work in Tamil Nadu State, focusing on the key districts namely Chennai, Thiruvallur and Kanchipuram, with the full support of the district Collector and the district administration and have strategized to initiate the same in the other districts soon. By far, 12 waterbodies for restoration has been shortlisted that would be funded by our industry members; all necessary approvals, NOCs have been procured and the work would commence soon after the seasonal change. The work of 1 of the Water Body at Shollinganallur (Gangaiamman Koil Street) commenced on 19th of Jan’18, supported by Grundfos. Now 60% of the work is done at the ground and is quickly heading towards completion.
CII along with the community and employees of Grundfos Pumps India Pvt. Ltd. conducted an awareness session at the site and was involved in clearing the bunds and planting saplings around the bund.
