Re: Quantities of faecal sludge from pits, tanks etc

Hello,

See the FSM1 conference report, page 8, which has a summary of various figures (table attached): www.susana.org/lang-en/library?view=ccbktypeitem&type=2&id=1243

Also the attached presentation at FSM2 has useful insights.

Re: Quantities of faecal sludge from pits, tanks etc

Hi Jonathan
The "standard" figures I often resort to are those found in Franceys et al. (1992) and are quite old:





There must be more recent studies dealing with those quantities but I am not aware which ones are the most relevant and generally applicable. Let's see what other people can say about this, and how updated figures differ!

Best,
Lukas

Quantities of faecal sludge from pits, tanks etc

Dear all,

As I am aware that there has been some fairly extensive research on this topic, I would not be surprised if there has already been some discussions on SuSanA .. if there is, please could someone point me in the right direction.

If not, could someone inform me what is the most authoritative technical document that can give guidance about the quantities of faecal sludge that are produced per capital per day from pits, tanks etc. thanks in advance for your help on this.

best regards,

Jonathan
