ADA pushes 5 green projects for Riyadh
The project includes closing down a sewage dumping facility in east Riyadh, increased tree planting activities and developing a seed bank.
The ADA has currently taken steps to stop tankers depositing sewage in the east of the Nazeem district in east Riyadh as waste water has been polluting the environment in nearby locations. The location will be developed into a three-kilometer public picnic center, Alsharq daily reported yesterday.
ADA's green surface project has already planted 6,000 acacia trees at Al-Thamamah picnic center. More than 80,000 plants of the acacia family such as Raddiana, Laeta and Flava will be planted shortly.
