Ooty: Association’s plea to prevent pollution

Udhagamandalam: The need to tackle the problems created by the dumping of discarded items and second-hand goods within the town has been emphasised by the Public Awareness Association of Udhagamandalam.

Pointing out that they were a source of pollution, the Secretary of the Association, G. Janardhanan has in a representation made to the Pollution Control Board sought the removal of such items from areas like Bombay Castle. A suitable place should be found for them outside the town.

The ban on air horns should be implemented stringently.

The practice of using kerosene as fuel for vehicles particularly mini buses should be curbed and restrictions should be imposed on playing music at high volume in public places.

Conservancy staff should not be allowed to set ablaze waste materials.

An end should also be put to the practice of setting fire to the dry grass inside the race course.

Smoke emission testing facilities should be set up near check posts.
