Elliot’s Beach Road in Besant Nagar gets recharge wells
The Greater Chennai Corporation is constructing recharge wells along Elliot’s Beach Road in Besant Nagar. The spots were identified based on inundation during the previous monsoon. Each recharge well is around 15 feet deep.
The initiative to sink recharge wells along the beach road is being carried out on a pilot basis.
The 3 wells constructed along the stretch help tap rainwater and recharge the groundwater during northeast monsoon
