On July 10th, staffs of Xianning Municipal Committee of Urban Management and Law Enforcement were dredging the box culverts and gutter inlets in the railway culvert of the West Street in Yong’an district, which is just one scene of the special action of resisting waterlogged disasters in Xianning urban areas.
The rainfall in Xianning urban areas during the flood season this year was short-time, abrupt and heavy, which has inundated over 11 road sections, including the railway culvert in West Street and the traffic light at the fork of the road. Then Xianning Municipal Committee of Urban Management and Law Enforcement issued the flood control contingency plan immediately, taking effective measures to drain water and restore the traffic order in the shortest time, however, the root cause of the water-logging problem has not been solved. To address both symptoms and root causes, Xianning Municipal Committee of Urban Management and Law Enforcement has taken steps to resolve the waterlogged problem based on the actuality of different areas and the requirements of the “one road one strategy”. To be concrete, they have stepped up frequency of dredging the Nanmen Qiaodong road section of Yushui Road, communicating with Yong’an Sub-district and the design departments to draw up plans of coping with the waterlogged problems in Yong’an Sub-district, Huaide Road and West Street.
So far by now, they have finished draining waters in the Water Park in Shiliutan Road and the Jiaotong Road junction as well as finishing dredging the box culverts in the West Street. Currently, the waterlogged areas in Xian’an Country Garden Road section and at the gate of Quanyun Community in Mailishan Road are being transformed. (By Wang Limin/Xianning Daily)
