Rainwater drainage channel to mitigate flooding

A rainwater drainage channel was constructed in a community that suffers frequent flooding where residents had to pump the water out. The channel runs along 80 meters and it is approximately 80 cm width x 60 cm height. This will ensure that water runs to a natural water reservoir.
