Why is it more difficult to provide sewage and sanitation services than recreation and cultural activities?
There are two simple reasons for this. First, there is the cost of price. It is much cheaper to create a park with green grass and a few things that people can enjoy than to create a water treatment center or a sewage center. So, there is the issue of price.
Second and more importantly, no one wants a sewage and sanitation center in their town. There will be an uproar from the community and protests. This public pressure is a very real concern and hindrance from having a sewage and sanitation center. For example, last year the pipe of a sewage center in New York City broke and all this sewage went into the Hudson River. Who wants this? However, would would say no to a park?
