The WRC is currently funding a 3year study tracking the characteristics of Pour Flush Sludges. We not there yet to release any data. Maybe in the next 6 months we will be able to provide some scientific data. The work is done by Chris Buckley’s team at UKZN

Hi

My manager, Jay Bhagwan from Water Research Commission (South Africa), asked me to add some information here - see the attached file. It is a bit of topic but as mentioned in earlier post, Chris Buckley and Dave Still's teams are currently doing research on the pour flush toilets. There are also improved designs being tested that use a low flushing cistern.

I have attached the report from initial trial - Elisabeth initially started a thread elsewhere( forum.susana.org/forum/categories/141-ot...dea-for-south-Africa ).

I'm attaching a old (probably, 1981) paper (in MSWord format) by my AIT friends on bacterial dia-off kinetics. Though, it is about waste stabilization ponds, it gives a good insight on the die-off kinetics.
