Ada banyak sungai berbagai ukuran yang mengalir di provinsi Kalimantan Selatan. Pada zaman dulu, sungai ini memiliki fungsi vital karena merupakan urat nadi transportasi dan ekonomi. Oleh karena itu perkampungan awal justru berada di bantaran sungai. Lambat laun sungai fungsi ekonomi dan transportasi berkurang dan akhirnya sungai justru beralih fungsi sebagai tempat sampah dan MCK. Di bantaran sungai, jarang ditemui WC, yang ada justru jamban, akibatnya BABS masih merupakan sebuah fenomena yang wajar. Ini juga saya temui di desa yang menjadi tempat Kuliah Kerja Nyata (KKN) saya nanti, desa Jejangkit Muara, kecamatan Jejangkit, kabupaten Barito Kuala, Provinsi Kalimantan Selatan. Disana, rumah yang kami sewa tidak memiliki fasilitas WC, hanya ada jamban dalam yang berupa lubang diantara lantai, dibawahnya ada sungai. Rumah tersebut tergolong bagus, mengingat tidak sedikit rumah disana yang tidak dilengkapi fasilitas WC atau pun jamban, sehingga warga menggunakan jamban umum yang dibangun di pinggir sungai. Masalah lain yang ada didesa tersebut adalah kelangkaan air bersih, air PDAM hanya mengalir dari pagi hingga siang hari. Air sungai adalah air yang asam dengan warna seperti karat. Sumur bor menjadi pilihan, namun tidak semua warga memiliki sumur bor. Jika memiliki pun, warna airnya putih keruh. Ironi, karena desa tersebut merupakan lokasi diselenggarakannya Hari Pangan Sedunia 2018.

Kondisi ini harus diubah, kebiasaan MCK di sungai harus dikurangi dan dihentikan. Pertama, karena berdampak buruk bagi sungai itu sendiri. Kedua, karena berdampak pada kesehatan masyarakat disana. Ketiga, akan menimbulkan citra negatif saat perhelatan Hari Pangan Sedunia.
