TNUIFSL to rope in consultants for master plan

Tamil Nadu Urban Infrastructure Financial Services Limited (TNUIFSL) would induct some consultants to prepare an overall plan to rejuvenate 214 km of waterways.

The plan would cover waterways including Mambalam, Velachery and Kodungaiyur drains and Otteri Nullah, and the 42 water bodies spread across the CMA.

The state government roped in TNUIFSL for providing technical assistance for the ambitious project, while Chennai Rivers Restoration Trust would act as the nodal agency.

TNUIFSL is in the process of selecting consultants for this purpose. The consultant would be responsible for a detailed analysis of the features of each lake and their current status, and will identify sources of pollution and map them.

Based on the master plan, various government departments will be involved in implementing the works over the next decade.

Though a list of 42 lakes has been provided by the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority the consultant has to take up a fresh study, identify the water bodies in the CMA, collate data on the projects taken up and provide an estimate of the period required for the revival of the water body.
