August 22: After the garbage dumped at Pacchadady had flown into residential area and also into houses of several people living close by due to heavy rainfall, Mangalore City Corporation (MCC) has now taken up work to build a temporary retaining wall to prevent the flow of garbage into a rivulet at Kanjiradi in Mandara near Pacchanady. The work on the wall is in progress and will ensure that the waste water from garbage will not pollute the stream.
24 families which were affected have been shifted to the Karnataka Housing Board apartments at Baithurli-Neermarga area.

Based on the report, MCC will initiate permanent measures to ensure that such incidents do not recur.
