The high levels of dust tend to stay in the air and this has gravely affected the air our children breathe. In order to tackle this problem, the residents of Adarsh Palm Retreat & Assetz ran a trial to sort out this problem. It involved watering the road thrice a day.

This exercise has some success and helped in reducing the dust levels. However, due to limited funds available, the trial ended last week. GEAR Innovative Intl. School, Multiple Intelligences & Talents Development Gurukul appeals to the residents of GEAR Road to support this initiative. If you and your community have noticed a reduction in the dust levels as a result of the trial, the kindly reach out to GEAR Innovative Intl. School Multiple Intelligences & Talents Development Gurukul with details of your association representative.

The trial was supported by the Assetz community, who supplied the water from their treatment plant, while the manpower and tanker were supplied by Adarsh. The running cost of the trial came up to around Rs 7,500 per week to run the trips thrice a day and six times a week.

Any contribution as little as Rs 1,000 to Rs 2,500 a week would help revive this service. Notably, the contribution would come down with the participation of all communities on GEAR Road. The plan is to ensure that there are funds committed until at least April 15, 2020. It is hoped that by then there would be a freshly tarred road.
