According to the petitioner against the “dropping of poop by airlines”, the planes dump waste over residential areas near the airport in Delhi.
The human waste in plane toilets are stored in special tanks. All this waste are to be disposed of after the plane has landed. However the international aviation authority has acknowledged that there could lavatory leakages causing the human waste to drop of while the plane is still in the air.
The aviation regulators have been asked by court to make sure that the human waste is not released before the plane has landed.
Here is the reason why the human waste are falling down on residential areas, of Delhi:
The National Green Tribunal, an environment court, also directed the regulator to ensure “that aircraft on landing shall be subjected to surprise inspection to see that human waste tanks are not empty”, the Press Trust of India reported.
“If any aircraft is found to be violating such circular or [their] tanks are found empty on landing, they shall be subjected to environment compensation of 50,000 rupees per default,” the court said.
The order followed a plea by a retired army officer who accused airlines of dumping human waste over Delhi’s residential areas. The officer said the “walls and floors” of the terrace of his house near the airport “are splattered with large patches of excreta dumped by aircraft flying in front of the airport”.
