The Problem: Every year there are more than 1 billion cases and over 1 million deaths globally from vector‐borne Zoonotic Diseases such as the Zika Virus, Malaria, Dengue, Lyme disease, Plague, West Nile Virus, Schistosomiasis, Human African Trypanosomiasis, Leishmaniosis, Chagas Disease, Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis and Onchocerciasis.
Filariasis may also reach man simply by being carried by flies or cockroaches via drainage. Thus, unlined open drains might become particularly dangerous transmission sites. It is at such sites that excreta disposal and human water contacts might occur in a concentrated and uncontrolled form.

International SARS Symposium
- The conference examined the spread of infectious disease through its escape from drains. It examined the spread of the SARS virus through dry traps at the Amoy Gardens apartment complex in Hong Kong, where 329 people were infected and 42 died.
- After a well known outbreak of Salmonella at a Georgia restaurant, the only traces of Salmonella found in the subsequent investigation were in the kitchen floor drains.
- Fruit flies and fungal gnats are common sightings in restaurants and QSR facilities, hovering over drains and creating a nuisance for employees. In addition, the flies can lay up to 200 eggs in the organic matter found in drain pipes.
- The importance of providing a reliable trap seal, in terms of public health, has increased substantially.
- The Green Drain reduces evaporation of the trap and provides a physical barrier to the emission of sewer gases, sewage backup, and pest pathways.
