Kevin (and others)
Do take contact with the people at SCOPE in Trichy in Tamil Nadu.

Some ten years ago they built a successful block of public toilets in Musiri.

These were UDDT squatters with an additional drain for anal washing. They had full-time maintenance. To my knowledge this facility remains in operation.

SCOPE also implemented large scale reuse of urine in the nearby banana plantations.

Musiri was rather special. A town of 30.000 with no planned sanitation system. Would be interesting if we can get an update.
