With the recent hurricane in the US and flooded streets ==> www.theatlanticwire.com/national/2012/10...s-destruction/58492/ , I seriously wonder what kind of emergency sanitation (plan) there is in a MegaCity like NYC. Maybe not tiny Peepoo bags that need to be stripped over a tin, but still - wouldn't this be a good scenario for dry, bag-based toilets (~Separett Privy 500)? Maybe as a DIY manual on instructables for those who temporarily need to convert their flush toilet into a dry solution?
Most emergency sanitation options for flooded areas are for rural areas only, or developing countries (often with a reuse concept), but I am particularly wondering about a suitable option for those who live in densely populated areas with an otherwise existing sewage infrastructure that is temporarily overloaded.
In other words: what do people use instead? Buckets?
