The Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) authorities are all set to begin a drive to clean all water bodies and sewers, except the private ones, in its territory on Sunday.
Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh, mayor of the DSCC, made the disclosure on Wednesday noon after inspecting the ongoing development activities of the Osmani Udyan.
“After cleaning the water bodies, we’ll make arrangements for fish farming and release ducks in them to ensure water flow. As a consequence, the cleaning activities would play an effective role in the prevention of mosquitoes in addition to solving water-logging problem,” Taposh said.
