Air pollution in BKK, vicinity improves

Suwit Rattiwan

BANGKOK, 25th December 2018 (NNT) - The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has deployed high pressure fire trucks to spray water into the air to decrease the amount of particulate matter in the atmosphere. The overall air pollution on Monday in Bangkok and its vicinity was better than the day before. 

The fire truck sprayed water 30 meters high into the air in front of the BMA City Hall 2 in Din Daeng, one of the five areas where air pollution has started to have undesirable health effects. The other four areas include Intharaphitak road in Thon Buri district, Lat Phrao road in Wang Thong Lang district, Kanchanaphisek road in Bang Khun Thian district and Tambon Songkhon in Samut Prakan province. 

Deputy Governor of Bangkok Thawisak Lertpraphan said the main causes of the high level of PM 2.5 in Bangkok and its vicinity include construction of buildings and roads, car exhaust fumes and a high pressure weather system during this period. The BMA is tackling the air pollution by vacuuming dust, spraying water into the air and washing road surfaces more frequently, he said. 

The BMA also sprayed water into the air at Victory Monument. 

The deputy governor called on the public to avoid burning waste outdoors and to wear masks that can prevent the intrusion of PM 2.5. He expected that the dust situation will significantly improve in 1-2 weeks.
