Re: How do you get households to connect to existing sewer networks?

Dear Meleesa,

Connections are called regular when the following four conditions are identified, according to Brazil's national and local legislation:

1 - Sewage effluents are being layed in public sewage system;
2 - Rainwater is not been layed in public sewage system;
3 - Household is not using a septic tank;
4 - Household has a grease tank (trap) according to standards established in technical norms.

Whenever any of these situations above is not identifyed by the agents, it is considered irregular. Once notified, users have two weeks to resolve it. In case they don’t, municipal environmental agencies take other measures (notification) related to their responsibilities. No fees are established.

I'd be glad to know the results of your review. Thank you
