    As the monsoon approaches, sewage overflow issues are still a problem in many areas of Hyderabad, especially in the southern and central parts of the city. Residents are worried that the upcoming rain will make the situation worse. Despite voicing their concerns on social media, locals feel that the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) has been slow in addressing the problem. Additionally, efforts to clean and desilt the drains in these areas are moving at a sluggish pace.

    Many residents have pointed out that open drains in various neighborhoods are clogged with garbage. If it rains, the streets could flood, and in some places, there is continuous sewage overflow. Despite multiple complaints, these issues remain unresolved and cause significant inconvenience during the monsoon season as it takes months to fix them.

    The affected areas include Nampally, Red Hills, Shaikpet, Tolichowki, Mehdipatnam, Film Nagar, Nizampet, Kukatpally, RK Puram, and Malkajgiri. Residents are frustrated with the situation and have been using the HMWSSB app to report the problems. However, little action has been taken to resolve the sewage overflow issues.

    Residents of Nizampet and Nampally have expressed their frustration with the lack of proper sewerage systems in their areas. The old sewer lines and inadequate drainage infrastructure have led to waterlogging and sewage overflow even with moderate rainfall. Complaints to the Water Board officials have not yielded any results, leaving residents dealing with foul smells and mosquito infestations.
