The sewerage network of the municipality of Chisinau is daily suffocated by such types of waste as masks, bags, packing, hygiene products and disposable gloves. Such a warning was made by SA “Ap-Canal Chisinau” (ACC), which noted that the municipal sewerage system is not a garbage bin, IPN reports.
“As some of the consumers do not realize or do not want to understand that the toilet is not a garbage bin, all these types of waste daily go through the sewerage system and in most of the cases reach the Treatment Station or block the system on the way,” the company said in a press release.
According to ACC, after a street pipe is unblocked, the water accumulated in this pours out on the street together with the waste, causing serious discomfort. Even if the situation is not caused by any defective intervention of the water supplier, the ACC’s teams are on the spot immediately to wash the affected area.
“Apă-Canal Chisinau” calls on the citizens to protect the municipal sewerage network and to use it according to purpose by not throwing solid waste into it.
