Solving Sewer Problems in Large Urban Areas

0 points

Before any new suburb is to be developed and constructed, infrastructure networks are the first things that are worked upon. They include electricity, water main, sewer lines, gas lines, telephone lines, fiber optics, roads, sidewalks, Internet, wireless networks and other needed infrastructure networks. Many large cities in the developing nations have a multitude of issues in suburban development but suburban development in developed nations (like U.S.A, U.K, Germany, South Korea etc.) have improved to a large extent over the passage of time.

Sewer problems in large urban cities like New York arise from the rotting and expiration of older sewer pipes in many of the city’s areas, given the fact that New York was first established as New Amsterdam in the 17th century. Throughout the course of time, sewer lines have been renovated and changed, replaced even and the cost and time of digging up roads, traffic holdups has to be taken into consideration. Some of New York’s roads are narrow, especially of Manhattan due to close concentration of vertical buildings which are well distributed. A damage sewer line, or sewer problems on any of Manhattan’s roads can result in traffic snarl ups and some hectic detours but the job has to be done. The track record of the Government of the City of New York in carrying out infrastructure repair work has been impeccable and perfect so far. Also, due to the heavy concentrated traffic of New York, most repair works have to be carried out at night in order to avoid traffic jams.  Also, other global cities like Amsterdam, Berlin, Tokyo, Bangkok, Sydney, Mumbai, Mexico City, Tel Aviv, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Auckland, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, London, Rome, Los Angeles and Toronto are also not immune from such kind of issues as well.

What to do when it comes to fixing both complicated and uncomplicated sewer problems in New York City? It would be best for the city government of New York to step up and call in the best contractors possible to help repair the damaged sewer systems so there can be no further holdups.
