CCC to launch crash program against mosquito, water logging
Chittagong City Corporation (CCC) is launching a 25-day crash program this week to tackle mosquito problems and reduce water logging in the port city. The Conservancy Department of the city corporation will begin the Tk9 crore program on Tuesday, which will continue until May 5, CCC Chief Conservancy Officer Shafiqul Mannan Siddiqui said. He said 500 conservancy workers, including 266 temporary ones, will be engaged in fighting against mosquito and reducing water logging in all 41 wards of the port city. The official said the drive will be conducted in five wards every day till it covers the entire corporation area by May 5 to bring relief to city dwellers from mosquitoes and water logging. "The workers will spray mosquito killing insecticide in canals, drains, culverts and other water bodies, which are the major sources of mosquito breeding," he said. CCC Executive Engineer Sudip Basak said besides spraying for mosquito control, CCC will also remove mud and garbage from canals, drains, culverts, ponds and water bodies to reduce water logging. "We want to clean up all drains, culverts and canals in the city so rain water cannot submerge city roads during heavy downpour or low tide," said CCC Mayor AJM Nasiruddin. He said similar special programs will be carried out in the city to improve the CCC services and livability of the port city, which is also the country's prime hub for foreign trade.
