    Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) has announced its ‘Monsoon Plan – 2024’ initiative to help with water logging and other rain-related issues in Hyderabad. The focus will be on drinking water supply and sewage management to ensure clean and safe water for residents.

    Water Board managing director Sudarshan Reddy emphasized the importance of maintaining clean water supply and managing sewage overflow. Complaints about contaminated water supply and sewage overflow must be resolved within half an hour. Safety grills will be installed on manholes, and warning signs will be placed at dangerous spots to prevent accidents.
