    According to the WHO’s air quality guidelines, by decreasing particulate matter from 70 to 20 micrograms per cubic metre, deaths caused by air pollution could be reduced nearly by 15%.

    There are basically two reason behind this.
    1- Its a completely garrison town. Presence of Army and other paramilitary had brought a sense of responsibility towards the citizens and helped a lot in keeping it clean.
    2- Presence of many big and small water bodies in and around the town. Whatever garbage gets accumulated is washed away towards these water bodies and in turn gets away to Brahmaputra flowing nearby.

    But it does have a serious problem though. Tremendous heat. Inspite of the Brahmaputra flowing nearby the place is too hot for comfort in summer. In this regard Dibrugarh does beat all other cities in Assam during summer.:)
