The Corporation of Chennai, India has only one method of cleaning the city's 1,660 km of storm water drains. It is one of the most off-putting sights in ‘Singaara Chennai’ (Beautiful Chennai). The Corporation of Chennai periodically removes silt or sludge from the storm water drains. And it is terribly out-of-date and the men are risking their life. I have captured this sewage cleaning man at Broadway, Chennai.

Wow, Muthusamy... what a great look into a hard job!
Here, storm drains are entirely separate from the sewage system. A person cleaning a storm drain here may only rarely encounter sewage or other health hazards (mostly from items that have been washed out of the streets). But I understand from your note that this system may carry much sewage -- and that it is important to keep the channels open!
An A+ portrait, as usual, sir.
