At five o'clock in the morning, the city was still asleep, and the cleaning team had assembled and was ready to go. On this day, I followed Wei Jiexiong of the ditch team and the team members into the ditch and dredged the silt. Why so early? Because clearing the ditch will affect the nearby traffic, it is necessary to rush to work before the citizens go out. Big Brother Wei didn't talk much, and kept a shy smile all the time. When I asked him what time he went to bed today, he said, "It's a little earlier today, usually at 3:45, but I woke up at 3:30 today." Because he has to get up very early, he usually goes to bed at 8 pm, although he and his wife work and rest. Not the same, but they can understand each other. 2_(1) Photo Credit:

Sedimentation in some ditches can be removed by mechanical suction, but some can only be lowered to the ditches manually and dug up with shovels with both hands. 4_(1) Photo Credit: Environmental Protection Agency, Executive Yuan Put on a chest-length waterproof frog suit to prevent sewage from infiltrating, then fasten safety buckles, put on a hard hat, and prepare to go down the drain. Before going down the ditch, the team members must reconfirm the safety of the bottom, such as the four-in-one gas detection, water flow, etc.
The place to go down the ditch is the common round hole cover on our roadside. When the hole cover is opened, the hands and feet need to be tightened close to the body, Grab the handle and curl up down the ladder. Slowly descending to the two-meter-deep culvert, it was immediately surrounded by the stuffy and humid air, accompanied by the dank smell of the ditch escaping into the nostrils, and the sewage was knee-deep. Except for the light sources equipped on the team members, the entire environment was claustrophobic, and only where the light sources illuminated could people see the silt and some floating garbage in the turbid water, and there were swarms of cockroaches on the side of the ditch. When you move your steps, the mud sticks to your feet and requires a little force to pull up to move forward.
