Share local drainage issues using Twitter
How to do it
If you use Twitter, you'll need to in your Twitter settings. Then when you Tweet, we can record your tweet on our .
It's as simple as walking outside, clicking a photo of floodwater or your blocked drains, and tweeting your photo with any one of these hashtags we listen to:
Note that hashtags are not case-sensitive, you don't need to match the case for your tweet to be recorded.
Why do it
Your Tweet contains valuable information for many flood management projects.
- It shows someone cares about that particular issue, which is a solid first step in solving it.
- It enables government and designers access to information that they might not otherwise get when designing infrastructure solutions.
- Photos of actual flood water are particularly valuable. Engineers can correlate the water levels in your photos with the rainfall records and our hydraulic model of Chennai. This enables them to make the hydraulic model more accurate. An accurate hydraulic model is essential in designing accurate hydaulic solutions.
