In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the community, the Buildings Department (BD) reminds building owners not to carry out unauthorised alteration works to the drainage system in their premises. They are also reminded to pour about half a litre of water into each floor drain at home at least once a week to ensure the water seal in the trap functions properly. Appended below please find the useful information on Healthy Drains for your perusal. Together, let's fight the virus!
