£2.50

Description

Authors: Reed, Bob.
Publisher: WEDC Loughborough, UK
Year: 2014
Physical: Series Booklet

The need for a latrine pit lining depends upon the type of latrine under construction and the condition of the soil. Septic tanks and aqua privies, for example, require watertight compartments so their pits are always lined. For a pit latrine, however, it is only necessary to line the pit if there is a possibility that it will collapse during its life span.

This guide examines the methods and materials for lining a pit and the soil conditions that determine which options are most appropriate.

Pit Latrines Booklet

Description

Authors: Reed, Bob.
Publisher: WEDC Loughborough, UK
Year: 2014
Physical: Series Booklet

Whilst pit latrines are often the most suitable form of sanitation in low-income communities, there are some situations which present particular challenges for designers and builders. These situations include locations where rock is close to the surface, so preventing the excavation of a deep pit, or in cold climates where solids do not decompose as readily as in warmer environments.

This guide examines the problems these circumstances present and suggests ways in which some of the difficulties can be overcome.

Pour Flush Latrines Front Cover

Description

Authors: Reed, Brian.
Publisher: WEDC Loughborough, UK
Year: 2013
Physical: Series Factsheet

Simple latrine pits offer a basic level of service to the user. Pour-flush latrines provide an improved option in terms of use, maintenance and construction. They are a cross between a pit latrine and a septic tank or sewer. A small amount of water is used to flush excreta out of a collection pan, down a short pipe and into a pit. A water trap, if fitted, fills with water to form a seal and isolates the pit from the user – an effective way of controlling smells and flies. This guide examines the pros and cons of selecting a pour-flush latrine as an on-site sanitation option.

Using water to flush faeces away from a toilet ensures that the waste is separated from the user, helping to control smells and flies. It allows the toilet facilities to be located inside the home, for the convenience and security of the user, especially women and housebound people. The water used for flushing however now needs to be treated and if public sewers are not nearby, a septic tank provides a simple but effective method of removing the worst of the contaminants.

This guide is about disposing of human wastes and sullage using septic tanks and aqua privies. It describes how they work and discusses how they are designed and constructed.

£2.50

Description

Authors: Reed, Bob.
Publisher: WEDC Loughborough, UK
Year: 2013
Physical: Series Factsheet

Pit latrines are one of the oldest forms of formal sanitation in the world and for many they are still the best. Pit latrines are simple to build and can be constructed using local materials and technologies. Compared with other forms of sanitation they are relatively cheap, easy to operate and maintain and, if properly used, help prevent the spread of excreta related diseases. For most low-income communities in the developing world, the pit latrine in one form or another will be the most appropriate means of excreta disposal.

This guide describes how pit latrines work and the components of pit latrines. It also examines some of the main problems that can arise with this simple form of sanitation.

Malgré le nombre important, à travers le monde, de dalles en béton installées autour des points d’eau, il existe relativement peu de schémas détaillés de ces dalles. Ceux existants présentent plusieurs caractéristiques communes. Ce guide fournit desinformations sur les dalles sous une forme nouvelle à base d’illustrations techniques et de schémas dessinés à la main. Il explique ce que sont ces dalles et pourquoi elles sont nécessaires. Il prend en compte les facteurs matériels, sociaux et organisationnels et présente les options techniques et les recommandations pour leur conception et leur construction.

Ce guide traite de la gamme de récipients d’eau domestiques communément trouvés dans les pays à faible revenu. Il examine le rôle joué par ces récipients dans un approvisionnement approprié et sûr en eau par le ménage.

Il explique aussi pourquoi la planification de l’approvisionnement en eau ne doit pas s’arrêter au robinet public ou au puits du village mais doit s’étendre jusqu’à l’endroit où l’eau est utilisée. Comprendre la façons dont les gens utilisent les récipients d’eau et concevoir un système d’approvisionnement qui les prennent en compte aidera les ingénieurs à concevoir un service plus sûr et de meilleure qualité.

Le besoin de revêtement pour une fosse dépend du type de latrine envisagé et de l’état du sol. Les fosses septiques et les systèmes aqua-privy, par exemple, doivent avoir des compartiments étanches. Leurs fosses sont donc toujours revêtues. Cependant, le revêtement pour une fosse de latrine ne sera nécessaire que s’il existe un risque d’effondrement du terrain durant la période d’utilisation.

Les latrines à fosse simple sont l’une des plus vieilles formes d’assainissement amélioré dans le monde, et pour beaucoup, elles restent la meilleure option. Les latrines à fosse simple peuvent être facilement construites en utilisant des matériaux et technologies locales. Comparées aux autres formes d’assainissement, elles sont relativement peu coûteuse, faciles à installer, à entretenir et, si leur utilisation est appropriée, elles participent à la prévention des maladies de type fécooral. Pour la plupart des communautés à faibles revenus dans les pays en voie de développement, les latrines à fosse simple seront la méthode d’élimination des excréments la plus appropriée.

Physical: Series Factsheet

Les latrines sèches à fosse simple offrent un service de base à l’usager. Les latrines fonctionnant avec de l’eau offrent une option améliorée en termes d’utilisation, d’entretien et de construction. Ces latrines sont à mi-chemin entre une latrine sèche à fosse simple et une latrine connectée à une fosse septique ou au tout à l’égout. Une quantité réduite “d’eau de chasse” y est utilisée pour évacuer les excréments de la cuvette vers la fosse (reliées par un court tuyau). Si un siphon est installé, il se remplit d’eau et fait ainsi office de joint d’isolation entre la fosse et l’usager – une façon efficace de contrôler les odeurs et les mouches.
