An unregistered septic tank cleaning vehicle was confiscated on Saturday as it dumped fecal sludge into an open drain near a Covid-owned hospital, a Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) spokesman said. The JMC has issued a public notice that all private septic tank cleaning vehicles must be registered with the company and fecal sludge cannot be disposed of outdoors. The spokesman said a team from JMC found a private, unregistered septic tank vehicle that was desludged in an open drain near the DRDO Covid hospital in Bhagwati Nagar and was appropriately confiscated.
The JMC appealed to all owners of private septic tank cleaning vehicles to register with JMC immediately and to ensure proper disposal of the faecal sludge.
