Importance of sewerage system
One of the fundamental principles of sanitation of the community is to remove all decomposable matter, solid waste, liquid or gaseous away from the premises of dwellings as fast as possible after it is produced, to a safe place , without causing any nuisance and dispose it in a suitable manner so as to make it permanently harmless.
Sanitation though motivated primarily for meeting the ends of preventive health has come to be recognized as a way of life. In this context, development of the sanitation infrastructure of any country could possibly serve as a sensitive index of its level of prosperity. It is needless to emphasize that for attaining the goals of good sanitation, sewerage system is very essential. While provision of potable drinking water takes precedence in the order of provision of Environmental Engineering Services, the importance of sewerage system cannot be last sight and cannot be allowed to lag behind, as all the water used by the community has to flow back as the sewage loaded with the wastes of community living , unless properly collected , treated and disposed off , this would create a serious water pollution problems.
