    people get water flush toilets we waste more and more water We not only waste water but also pollute rivers and ground water with all the pathogens that cause cholera jaundice polio dysentery diarrhoea and so on The government has invested crores in big pipes that empty sewage everything we flush down the toilet and a lot more besides into our rivers all in the name of Public Health It is just awfully bad luck on those that live downstream But the truth is we all live downstream of someone Over 90 of sewage is discharged untreated Even septic tanks are not the solution that people often believe them to be And even good septic tanks do not remove all the pathogens Every day septic tanks discharge the same volume of water that they receive This effluent is only partially treated and still contains pathogens and it all has to soak away into the ground Sadly there are many badly built septic tanks so the situation is even worse with untreated sewage leaking straight out of these tanks The situation is particularly bad where septic tanks and pit latrines penetrate the water table and can easily pollute our wells and watercourses This is not to say that vast numbers of pit latrines and septic tanks are not doing a good job Rather that as population pressures push us to develop more and more marginal lands for settlements we have built water flush toilets where we should not This new book ECOLOGICAL SOLUTIONS TO FLUSH TOILET FAILURES points out the failures and the way forward for public health and sanitation in S Asia The work described in the book is based on our practical experience in India and Sri Lanka developing ecological sanitation an approach to sanitation that Minimises water use Protects groundwater Protects surface water Recycles excreta s valuable plant nutrients Sanitises excreta unlike many flush toilets systems which simply discharge rather than sanitise Ecological Solutions to Flush Toilet Failures The author Paul Calvert a development engineer working on appropriate technologies and sustainable livelihoods first came to India in 1987 as a designer and boat builder to assist the artisanal fish worker organisations in Kerala However after several years of work in the artisanal fisheries sector the terrible situation faced by women with regard to sanitation gained his attention and concern This led in 1995 to his development of the Dry Compost Toilet to solve the problems of sanitation in congested high water table areas The effectiveness of this approach has led to great interest in many other parts of India and S Asia and further afield The book uses many pictures and diagrams to show that many of us are making the wrong sanitation choices although by and large we do not realise it It also points the way to what we can do about it and the many benefits that this can bring to society and the environment It is not simply a case of preventing disease it
