The Britannia pumping station, at Reay Road, has half a dozen pumps which will flush out rainwater and prevent flooding, a senior Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) official said today.

“Constructed at a cost of Rs. 106 crore, this pumping station has successfully started flushing storm water from 10 major chronic flooding spots, particularly B R Ambedakar Marg, BDD Chawals, Sardar Hotel, Kala Chowki, T B Kadam Marg and Burhani Colege, and reduced the chances of flooding in these localities,” he said.

The facility has been constructed under the BMCs storm water disposal system project to prevent flooding and stagnation of water in the low-lying areas, he said.

Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray and Mumbai Mayor Snehal Ambekar would commission the station at a small function.

According to the BMC, this station has six pumps with the total capacity of discharging water at 36,000 liters per second.

This is the only storm water pumpig station on the east coast of the city, while the west coast has four such facilities – at Haji Ali, Irla, Love Grove and Cleveland.
