there is need for a cooperative approach between the local authority and community in order to reduce water pollution
also there should be awareness and campaigns on how to reduce pollution once public participation is involved they become compliant and together we can make it
#cr makombe on Mar 22, 2017 :
pollution is really a sad not;lets unite and control it
#E. Makonese on Apr 12, 2016 :
pollution control starts in our brains and thats when it can manifest physically. too few cases have been reported and taken up to court in the past years. the community need to make use of the constitution and enforce our rights. we the people have a constitutional right to a healthy environment, as such we need to take legal actions more often against the polluters. by so doing the courts will help us in redeeming our environment.

how do we plan on solving the problem if I may ask
#P Washe on May 12, 2015 :
pollution is a complex problem that should be adressed from mulitidimensional angles ranging from cultural,social and economic perpective if it is to be reduced.
#David Chibhoyi on Apr 05, 2015 :
The most important thing is awareness, the second thing is to nudge and finally some regulations. its not only the fine money we want, but a sustainable behavior change by polluters. Hazards associated with pollution are to be communicated in capital letters.

city of harare should introduce biogas digester to its sewage treatment works so as to reduce the deposition of raw sewage into the Lake Chivero and increase power supply through biogas production.
#Happwell Musarandega on Mar 27, 2014 :
Controlling pollution in Harare, like in any other place, can be combated starting from individual perception. Lets shun littering streets and place rubbish in designated places. Through this, the Harare City Council, EMA, ZRP e.t.c will find their work easier and our Harare will once again be the sunshine city.
