To cool down the city during the heatwave, the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) is ramping up its efforts with a variety of approach.

The city corporation have deployed spray cannon vehicles to create mist showers on the streets.

DNCC Mayor Md Atiqul Islam announced the introduction of mist showers to offer cooling relief to residents amid the sweltering heat.  

Two spray cannon vehicles, each capable of dispersing 400,000 litres of water per day, will operate from 11am to 4pm.

Last week, the Dhaka North authorities introduced spraying water on the streets to abate heatwave.

Mayor Atiq said to address narrower lanes, smaller water-spray vehicles will be deployed. The DNCC has 10 such vehicles at its disposal.

He also instructed officials to extend mist showers to parks and sports fields within a week, enhancing public comfort further.

Additionally, 200 distribution vans have been mobilized to provide drinking water across various areas, prioritizing parks and sports fields.
