The Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning have been ordered to prepare early for the rainy season and take the necessary measures to prevent water-logging across roads and streets.
Top ministry officials met on 23rd September to discuss preparations for the upcoming rainy season.
Attendees stressed the importance of protecting houses that were damaged in the past year and finding appropriate solutions as much as possible to ensure that they will not be damaged again.
An emergency team has been set up in each governorate to start work, make sure of preparations, start visiting sites and identify the needs.
Hotlines have been allocated to receive reports on water-logging in the four municipalities and public streets.
The team was also directed to ensure the safety of sewage networks through a field visit by officials during the next two days and present a report on the follow up of the sewage channels and cleaning activities during the past months.
Water suction tankers will be parked near schools, hospitals and residential areas that were submerged by floods last year.
