Gurugrammers come together to contain air pollution

To deal with the severe environmental pollution in the city, residents of several high-rise societies of Gurugram adopted measures to tackle the situation. While some washed roads and trees, others sprinkled water from rooftops of building to settle down the dust particles in the air.

Considering the high level of pollution in the vicinity, RWA of Lifestyle Homes in Sector 83 sprayed water on road and trees to provide temporary relief to the residents from the smog. They also carried out cleanliness drive in the vicinity to ensure hygiene in and around the society premises. 

“This is our small contribution to reduce the pollution level in the city. We request other housing societies in our neighbourhood to follow suit,” said one of the RWA members of Lifestyle Homes.

Similarly, Mapsko Casa Bella upped the ante in its efforts to curb pollution. With the help of fire extinguishers, the RWA of the society tried to create artificial rain by sprinkling water from the rooftop. 

Dharamvir Singh, president of the Mapsko Casabella RWA, said, “To bring down the pollution level, we have initiated this measure. With the help of fire extinguishing equipment, we sprayed water from top of the towers to bring some respite to the residents.”

Apart from this, residents are also distributing masks among security guards and other staff who are exposed to the tough weather conditions all day long. 

Residents of Fresco in Sector 50 made a collective effort and distributed 120 masks among the guards, housekeeping staffs and horticulture team.

“While the residents can easily afford to buy masks and protect themselves from severe pollution, for security guards, housekeeping or horticulture guys spending Rs 200 or so to buy a mask is a luxury. They cannot afford but they are the ones who need it more than us as they have to work in the open for eight hours a day. Hence, we thought it important to provide them with the masks so that they could protect themselves from pollution,” explained Nilesh Tandon, Fresco RWA president.
