Deluged but not Bangalored, Hyderabad blueprint to cut flooding

By Prof Anjal Prakash Sep 13, 2022

In this The Times of India story, Anjal Prakash talks about ways to avoid a Bengaluru-like flood crisis in Hyderabad. Emphasizing the need to protect lakes and ponds, he says there's much work to be done to separate storm water drainage from sewerage network, and that must be the priority. As climate models predict heavy rains in future, the infrastructure must be designed to withstand 200-250mm of rainfall in 24 hours. "Also, climate change data should be downscaled to Hyderabad's level for micromanagement", he further adds.
