The assumption of amount of garbage collected in the canal was making authority’s skin crawl and it was high time to take action. The color of water was changing constantly which was sign of increasing pollution in it. So without any further ado, the process of emptying the canal began on January 4, 2016. They estimated the time of three months to clean the canal.
I hope you remember the length of the canal. So you can imagine, cleaning it won’t be an easy task. The intensity of the situation was visible given that residents have to be included to get it cleaned faster. But, can you imagine the amount of water which was removed? It was whooping 3 million cubic feet. And the whole project coated $10 million.
