Dengue-prone CMC public toilet


Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Friday, 16 March 2018 00:00


The public toilet located in Gemunu Lane, Awwal Zaviya has not been in use for a long time. This toilet was to be brought down some time ago with the roof only being removed and the balance demolition work coming to a standstill due to reasons not known. 

There is always some water stagnating during rainy days and with garbage getting accumulated in this toilet, it has become site prone for deadly dengue.

I hope that the Dengue Control Unit of the Colombo Municipal Council will take immediate steps to demolish this toilet and make the place safe (dengue free) for the people residing in the vicinity.
