Manual on the design, construction and maintenance of low-cost pour-flush waterseal latrines (English)

This manual has been prepared for agencies, contractors and individuals involved in various aspects of the low-cost pour flush waterseal latrine program in India. The inherent principles are, however, of general application; with minor modifications the technical details can be readily adapted to meet the needs of different areas, particularly where water is used for ablutions. The manual provides the salient features of design, construction and maintenance as well as the administration of low-cost pour-flush waterseal latrines with off-set twin pits. It contains extensive drawings, tables of quantities of materials for different designs as well as standard forms for by-laws and for general project administration and supervision.
