Ahead of the arrival of the monsoons, the Dimapur district administration in coordination with Dimapur Municipal Council (DMC) has taken initiative for cleaning/clearing major affected drainages in Dimapur city starting from March 19, 2019.

According to a DIPR report, cleaning of the affected areas, which would be taken up colony/ward wise, would continue for one whole month. On the first day, cleaning started from United Colony, GHSS area by DMC and the colony members. 

DMC administrator, Moa Sangtam, informed that the cleaning work in the same stretch would take two more days. Office of the deputy commissioner (DC) Dimapur is taking care of the refreshment provided to the workers.

Every year during the monsoon, residents face problems due to flooding when water from clogged drains inundate colonies. Poor waste management also results in garbage blocking drains, which contributes to flooding.
