Answer:
A large fraction of our people defecates in the open. Untreated human excreta is a health hazard and may cause water pollution and soil pollution. Both the surface water and groundwater get polluted. Groundwater is a source of water for wells, tubewells, springs and many rivers. Thus, it becomes the most common route for water borne diseases.
