Hanoi races rainy season to deal with flood-prone areas

According to the company, there were a total of 15 flood-prone spots detected last year. They claimed that they had dealt with two areas on Giai Phong and Nguyen Chinh streets. The rainfall exceeded the designed capacity of the city drainage system and rapid urbanisation had also worsened the situation.

"People still dump rubbish near rainwater and storm conduits," said Hoang Manh Ha, head of the drainage operation office.

Vo Tien Hung, director of Hanoi Sewerage and Drainage Limited Company, said even though the areas would still be flooded this year, the time they are affected would be reduced because they had dredged, upgraded and cleaned the sewers. However, there were many difficulties such as slow disbursement.

This year, the company will improve the drainage speed. They have also completed preparations for the coming storm season.
