Sanguem: The office Water Resources Department in Sanguem is in total mess and monsoon water from roof top is found entering the premises on all sides.
The corners and the side walls of the premises are the worst hit with monsoon water almost pouring inside the premises when it rains. Huge quantity of water is seen accumulated at all corners of the office premises giving the officials a hard time in discharging their duties.
The water is reportedly entering into the premises due to weak top slab and poor water proofing.
Sources informed that the authorities had done estimate of the repair work to the building premise on two occasions, however the work was not executed.
The file pertaining to the repair work of the building premise has now been moved for the third time and the same is under consideration.
Meanwhile, the only wash room inside the office premise is also in total mess with no proper water connection and sanitary fittings.
Moreover, the washroom also does not have proper latch facility and this restricts the use of the washroom by women working in the office.
Incidentally, though the electrical fittings and fixtures are also in need of urgent repairs and replacements, the authorities claim the electrical repair work to be under consideration and that the same will be undertaken soon. [H]
