Do your bit in ensuring that drains and sewers do not get blocked (Part 1)
Over the past few decades it has been highlighted by scientists and the news that we have to do more to look after our planet. We can do this in many different ways. One of the main things people can do is to look after the drain and sewerage system in the UK to reduce the likelihood that it will keep getting blocked.
This can have dire consequences for the wildlife as blocked sewers often lead to surface water flooding with residential areas and city centres becoming awash with foul smelling wastewater. But that is not all, as the natural habitat of wildlife is also affected by sewer flooding which can destroy their environment near rivers and waterways.
Closer to home you can help to make sure that this isn’t allowed to happen. This can be done in a number of ways which we will be focusing on in this article and the next one.
Firstly, and this has been mentioned many times before, you really need to take responsibility for the items flushed down into your drains. It is a sad fact that most of these flooding instances are caused by people getting rid of products in this way.
