Removal of sewer odours
In order to avoid unpleasant odours coming from the sewer, do not spill fat liquids into the sink! Grease sticks to the drainage pipe walls, it becomes stale and eventually smells bad.
In order to protect yourselves from such odours, recycle oil!
Facilitating rainwater infiltration into the ground
In the case of rainwater, we face a paradox: the rain is a boon for nature, but also a growing danger for the urban population.
Due to the imperviousness of urban driveways, directly related to the development of towns and climate change that cause heavy rains, there are increasing accumulations of water that should be drained. The rainwater intake capacity of the wastewater facilities built several decades ago is insufficient. Moreover, such water carries sand, construction debris and household waste dumped at random, into the sewer.
It is therefore important to do everything that we can so that the rainwater on our property is no longer entirely collected by the sewage system; it should infiltrate, as much as possible, into the ground.
Consequently, we must reduce the surface of impervious areas on our property, choosing lawn instead of concrete slabs.
Another possibility would be to collect rainwater and use it to water the garden.
