3. Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow :

The neglected irrigation canal passing through the heart of the Champdani town has become a matter of great concern for the residents. It is posing a threat to the environment of the town. The heavily-silted irrigation canal with practically no flow of water except during monsoons, is full of weeds, dirt and filth. Stagnation of water at different pockets of the irrigation canal has become a favourable breeding ground for mosquitoes, flies and rodents.
Moreover during the high tide and monsoons/when the Hooghly river is in a spate, the lock gates of the DVC irrigation canal are opened to allow back flow of water. The heavily-silted irrigation canal, with no capacity to hold excess flow of water, overflows, inundating a large part of Champdani town.

The drainage system fails to empty since the irrigation canal water finds its way into the residential areas through drains. The local civic body Chairman. Mr. Suresh Mishra, said, “The canal has been neglected for years. Intensive dredging must be conducted to restore the irrigation canal to its original depth. The dense layer of weeds, filth and dirt needs to be cleared off to stop stagnation of water. The DVC needs to pay attention towards the repairing and maintenance of the canal and lock gates to that they can withstand the massive water pressure during monsoons when the Hooghly river is in a spate.”
