Since the commencement of rainfall this year, the residents of the area have been appealing to the government to help construct the road linking Gwaram to Hardawa and erect drainages to mitigate the impact of water that overflows into the town, destroying houses and farmlands.

The floods which flow through the main road up to the river by the east of the town usually ravage houses and farmlands in the township, a situation which makes the citizens restless when ever it rains.
