This time the Delhi government does not want to make any mistakes. An anti-dust drive is being conducted in Delhi from October 5 to October 15.
The problem of pollution becomes a cause of concern in Delhi as winter season arrives. Last year, the air quality in Delhi reached an emergency. In such a situation, the Delhi government does not want to make any mistakes this time. An anti-dust drive is being conducted in Delhi from October 5 to October 15.
Under this campaign, all measures are being taken to prevent dust particles from spreading in the air. Most attention is being paid to the construction site and demolition site. Instructions have been given to ensure deployment of ‘anti smog guns’ at all such sites.
Orders have been issued by the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) to all construction agencies and local bodies to place these guns everywhere where the dust blows.
How ‘anti smog gun’ works
A canon-shaped anti-smog gun has been designed in such a way as to create fine droplets of water. The pressure is created in the Canon with the help of a high speed fan installed in the rear of the canon.
It is connected to the water tanker with the help of pipes. With the help of small nozzles placed in the front of the canon, fine drops of water are spread through the shower. These drops of water absorb the small dust particles present in the air. This anti smog gun can be operated at 360 degree angle.
The purpose of the use of this anti-smog gun specially designed to reduce air pollution is to reduce the level of PM10 and PM2.5 which is increased by these dust particles.
Delhi government becomes strict about pollution
Work has been ordered to stop work at 6 major construction and demolition sites in Delhi. In fact, the Delhi Pollution Control Committee had instructed to install anti-smog guns at these sites to prevent dust from blowing, which was not imposed after which this action was taken. The 6 sites against which action has been taken are
Netaji city construction work, NBCC (asked to install anti smog gun on 20 August)
