Q
Wastewater Story

Question:

Outline your role as an active citizen in relation to sanitation.

Answer:

1. We should throw cooking oil and fats in the dustbin. Drains get blocked by cooking oil and fats. In an open drain, the fats clog the soil pores reducing its effectiveness in filtering water.

2. We should not drain chemicals like paints, solvents, insecticides, motor oil, and medicines. They may kill microbes that help purify water. 

3. We should cover the open drain to keep our surroundings clean.

4. We should keep a separate dustbin for recycled and non-recycled waste.

5. We should always use the toilet and never urinate on road.
