Flash cards for Onsite sanitation systems (India; in English and Gujarati language) - based on Sandec Compendium

Hi All,

Following is a link to the Flash cards developed by the Urban Management Centre and CEPT University’s Performance Assessment System (PAS) project , which classify different on-site sanitation available, encompassing all four aspects in the value chain: Collection/storage, conveyance, semi-centralized treatment and disposal/use.

sanitation.indiawaterportal.org/english/node/3215

The flash cards can be used as visual aids in the field to identify and evaluate existing systems and processes. These cards can also be used as tools to foster discussion with municipal council officers on septage/ fecal sludge management in their cities.

There are a set of 20 flash cards which cover collection, conveyance, treatment and disposal options for outputs from a pour flush user interface. These cards are color-coded as follows based on the level of acceptability and conformation to safe sanitation practices in India which may be applicable in other countries also.

Red colour : Systems and processes that are prohibited by law
Orange colour : Systems and practices that are unsafe and need to be improved/ phased out
Green colour : Acceptable and safe systems and practices

Please feel free to get back if you have any queries or suggestions.

Regards,
Aasim

Visually appealing and easily comprehendible graphics from Eawag’s ‘Online Compendium of Sanitation Systems and Technologies’ help better illustrate the entire value chain of various types of on-site sanitation systems that are currently in use.

Nice flash cards !

There is an NGO that I am supporting in a project in India....please send me an email where I can correspond with you.*

By the way, on your next version of these cards, hopefully you can produce some flash cards for dry toilets like the UDDT , or perhaps you already have?

I see you are with a Urban related organization hence focus on the water based technologies.

Dear Aasim

Nice cards, will definitively test them in some workshop. On order to extend the selection for other technology option you may want to make available a template to produce own own card?

For all: a generic set of Compendium technology cards as well as various other material and templates are svailable here: www.eawag.ch/forschung/sandec/publikatio...ompendium_e/index_EN

Cheers, Dorothee

Hi Aasim,

Nice work you did here - and thank you for correctly acknowledging our eCompendium.
We discovered thís by chance on Susana, would be great if you could send us a preview copy next time so that we are informed about new uses and developments of the Compendium!

Congrats

Re: Flash cards for Onsite sanitation systems (India; in English and Gujarati language) - based on Sandec Compendium

Dear Aasim,

I have one question related to the "The Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers (and their rehabilitation) Act, 2013".

On some of your flash cards it states that this law "prohibits manual cleaning and
emptying of pit toilets and septic tanks"

While at other cards the Twin-pit toilet is promoted as a good technology for the future (which I agree with, providing water source protection measures are in place). How does the manual scavengers act regard the manual emptying of twin pit latrine pits in your interpretation?

Regards

Marijn

@ marijin.. we understand that the twin pit system has been promoted specifically to address the challenge of emptying of the pits. One pit when filled has to be left unused while the second pit is in operation. CPHEEO manual also mentions that within a period of 1.5 years, the fecal matter turns into "pit humus" that can be safely and manually removed. Hope this answers your query.

Thanks Christoph,

we have used the eawag compendium extensively in our research and also while developing the flash cards. Surely, will keep you posted on such developments. Meghna, Urban Management Centre

Thanks Dorothee,

Do let us know the feedback on the flash cards when you use them.. We are now in the process of using these for preparing a fecal sludge management plan for a city in India. These flash cards definitely need extension to show other technology options. As a first phase, we developed these to include options that are predominantly found in Gujarat, India..

Great!

The templates and technology illustrations are available freely on the website so please take advantage of them, and use them however you can!
