Measures are afoot to make Kandy an environmental friendly City. It is said to be an environmental-polluted City.
The conditions in Colombo are eased due to the sea breeze although it is considered as the city where the maximum pollution is taking place. Kandy is located in a basin surrounded by hills. As a result the pollution level is high. This was revealed at a meeting held under the patronage of Kandy District Secretary Gotabhaya Jayaratna.
Nearly 60 thousand vehicles enter the Kandy City daily and the smoke emitted is instrumental in causing diseases. The District Secretary said that several programmes are plannedf with the participation of Government institutions to bring the situation under control.
