East Delhi Municipal Corporation bets on hi-tech machines to curb pollution

To reduce pollution levels in the , (EDMC) has roped-in 40 water sprinkling tankers, two super-sucker machines, six suction-cum-jetting machines and 4 mounted litter picker machines.

EDMC has commissioned these machines which have been purchased with funds allocated under the Urban Development Ministry’s Swachh Bharat Mission.

The cost of one water sprinkling system with a capacity of 9,000 litres is Rs 24.40 lakh. More than 50 such machines have been notified as being operational.

“Water sprinkling tankers will be helpful in curbing the spread of dust on roads, thus lowering the level of dust pollution. Suction-cum-jetting machines have been deployed to clean the drainages that often get choked with household waste, garbage and construction material,” an EDMC release said.

The civic body hopes that induction of these world class machines would help in curbing dust particles in the air and hence controlling pollution.
