World Environment Day: Pollution due to construction activities, a big problem
Visit any area where construction activity is going on (using sand, cement, bricks mode of construction) and one will always find fine particles of either sand or cement or a combination of both floating in air around the construction sites.

Even, one can find layers of sand dust, cement dust lying scattered in and around these areas, beyond those points where they are stored. Generally speaking, till the construction activity is finally closed such particles freely float both in the air as well as on the surface of the land surrounding the ongoing construction activities.

It takes at least a couple of years or more for such constructions to finish. Therefore, till such time, one has to face same problem. Houses and flats (including apartments) located in such areas become vulnerable for getting penetrated with dust particles even at the slight blow of wind in either directions.

It is surprising, hardly any construction firm uses dust sucking equipment on an everyday basis to tackle the above situation. On this World Environment Day, falling on June 05, it makes sense to raise this issue for arriving at a solution.

With the help of law, builders and contractors should be mandated for using dust sucking equipments on large scale and on regular basis (especially during the construction process and at the time of finish) in their area of activities which would help keep the area and the surroundings clean mainly from air and dust pollution.

However, it is good to see some builders do make attempts to convert a portion of vacant land in and around the activities of construction with different types of plantations. For the plants to grow to a decent level it takes many years and till such time, air pollution is an issue one has to face in these areas.

The above measure will also give a boost to those firms which are into manufacturing different types of vacuum and dust sucking machines.
