Savanette December 3, 2010

This is the stream that runs along the side of the town. Near the pig, you can see the sewage that drains into the stream from the open trenches that cross through the town. In the background you can see people in the stream, some cleaning clothes, others drawing water. They actually are upstream from where this trench is dumping sewage. Just about 200 yeards in the other direction which is downstream, I saw women bathing in the water. You also have to remember that farther up as well as farther down stream there are other towns and villages where people are bathing in, drawing from and cleaning clothes in this stream which is also receiving the sewage from all these towns and villages. I can only imagine how polluted the stream is towards the end of its flow.
