Abstract

Storm water drainage is meant to carry storm water (rain water) and any other clean surface water. It is fundamentally not suitable or designed for carrying sewage or industrial waste water or even septic tank effluent. Even the effluent from the sewage treatment plant cannot be discharged into it . Therefore, one of the urgent tasks should be to make plans for diversion of all waste water (both domestic and industrial) from surface drains.
