Clean up

Nehr-e-Khayyam, the semi dried lake of effluent that passes parallel to the main Khayaban-e-Jami has been undergoing a clean up since early morning.

2 tractors have been seen so far ploughing solid waste from the lake since morning and a long line of spanking new green coloured waste disposal trucks owned by the CDGK are lined up next to the opening and the amount of dust in the air makes things unbelievably irritating.

The good news is, there will no longer be a sewage lake here. Bad news, maybe a concrete jungle extension.

    Good post Inspirex. I too, unfortunately live right opposite the Nehr-e-Khayyam and woke up this morning to the sound of trucks picking our waste from it. Though it is a good sign that the Nehr is finally been cleaned up but I wonder everyday on what does the CDGK plan to do after operation cleanup? I doubt if any commercial thing would go on since this is a purely residential area, do you know of anything that’s about to come up on the place?

    Awww, this means we can’t call the KGS, Karachi Grammar School, (besides the Nahar of course, and separated by all but a tin-sheet wall) the Karachi Gutter Supply anymore…

    It is preparation of Rain season when the real test of new rain drainage system comes to affect. nothing doing with builders mafia or concrete jungle.

    Both sides sewer will carry the flood / rain water into that “Khayyam Ki NADDI” and to the boatbasin discharge
