Lagos Wastewater Managers Caution Residents against Pollution

-

- Advertisment -

The Coordinator, Lagos State Wastewater Management Office (LSWMO), Mr Adeniyi Abdul,  has urged residents against channeling their waste water into the highway or major roads in the metropolis.

Abdul made the appeal in Lagos, stating that such act could lead to serious pollution of the environment.

He advised house owners to construct septic tanks in their premises and not to create channel for the waste water into the drains or roads, to avoid prosecution.

The official said that such property would be sealed off, if the environment was found to be degraded by such water.

“Our Monitoring Enforcement Compliance Unit is saddled with the responsibility of ensuring that septic tanks and soak away is not full; and that channeling defaulters are adequately sanctioned if found guilty.

“It is an infraction on the environment and such practice pollutes the environment.

“Each house is expected to provide its septic tank and a soak away inside each compound.

“When it is full, occupant(s) will have to call the dislodging trucks to dispose off at the designated points,” Abdul said.

According to the coordinator, there are four septic disposal points located at Oregun Road, Ojota, Lekki and Amuwo Odofin.

“Hopefully, before the end of the year, we will have another one at Abesan, Tolu, in Ajegunle where people can dispose septic legally.

“Any other point except these points, are illegal, and the penalty will be decided at the Magistrates’ court.’’
