Port Blair
12 Nov 2017

As part of its efforts to ensure a clean environment and further supplements efforts of Swachh Bharat, 'Coast Guard Wives Welfare Association' (CGWWA) in collaboration with local NGO 'Clean City' and around 60 volunteers of Indian Coast Guard from different units at Port Blair conducted 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan' at AIR road here. There is a disused well which is more than 150 yrs old and was a source of clean portable water earlier. However due to the unabated urbanisation the well became redundant and it was left to decay. The CGWWA took up to restore the well. There was thick vegetation all around the well and it was filled with plastic bottles. CGWWA under the stewardship of Smt Jayanthi Suresh and Clean City NGO Chairman, Smt Anuradha Lall cleaned up the well and surrounding areas through their strenuous efforts. The stagnant water was pumped out and all the garbage and inorganic material was removed. The team was also supported by the local councillor and PBM staff.
