sewage leakage


The issue that the community is facing is the smell from the sewage because people have connected the pipes without installing the water.


And when people are going to the toilets they use water from their jojo tanks to flush because the toilets are not yet connected, some uses papers not toilets papers and that causes blockage.


The most affected one is children because they are playing near the leakage they are affected in such a way that they now have diseases called bacteria, fungi and parasites and these diseases causes diarrhoea, fever and cramp.


The solution that we came up with is that the municipality repair the pipes and install water. Dispose of household chemicals and automotive fluids properly.
