Background

Eco San Toilets :

People living in targeted villages are mostly dependent on agriculture and poor .Our Baseline Survey shows around 80 % people in targeted village do open defecation. In total, only 35% toilet is there & Only 5 % use toilets. Open defecation in rural area of Block Shohratgarh is big concern. It leads to soil contamination, surface and groundwater pollution as well as invitation to disease like typhoid, cholera, diarrhea JE/AES (Japanese /Acute Encephalitis Syndrome). Japanese encephalitis is a viral disease that infects animals and humans. It is transmitted by mosquitoes and cause inflammation of the membranes around the brain of affected human being. Mostly children are affected by this disease. Human excrement that villager leave each day in fields of paddy, potatoes Etc. & on banks Of water sources which are used for drinking. In This way Infections are related to excreta in two ways: the pathogens leave the original host’s body through excreta, or one of the vectors of the disease benefits from the lack of adequate sanitary structures or from accessible excreta. Several disease-groups leave the body through excreta. Though, there is vaccine to prevent the disease. But, After Survey in these two villages, It was found that crisis for girls are especially acute: Many drop out of school, once they reach puberty because of inadequate lavatories in schools. On other hand, people having toilets are not aware about basic such as relation of groundwater & discharges from a toilet.

Most of people are dependent on agriculture & as per requirement they also develop kitchen garden. Development of Eco San Toilet will provide them water & fertilizers both. So, It is inevitable that model eco san toilets to be develop in these two villages. This action is not only a step towards prevention of open defecation but also sensitize people about benefit of toilets to community. The Programme does not focus on achieving only targets But on transforming behavior of people. Health and hygiene promotion to mothers is key to improve the children’s behaviour and reduce the risks of open defecation by children. The focus is to replicate or multiplying the number of eco san toilets in future too rather than socio-engineering of the concept in the lives of the rural people. Construction of toilets is just one part of programme; the Inevitable step is to make people use them.

Rain Water Harvesting:

Shohratgarh is a small tehsil of District Siddharthnagar. Population of town is around 10000.Though, there is Jal Nigam but there is little supply of water to the town. So, people living in town have installed their personal motors as well as tank. Since 1964, Shivpati Post Graduate College in town, is serving as excellent learning center for not only people residing in town but from other town in neighborhood district. Currently, strength of college is 800. By our survey in the college, we found that 50 % of students drink water from unsafe sources. As area is affected by Japanese Encephalitis /Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (JE/AES). Safe drinking water is only proactive way to prevent dreaded disease. The annual average rainfall of town is 897.8 Mili Metre (mm).So, construction of rooftop rainwater harvesting can be used as alternative mode for drinking water & other usage in college. By setting up rain water harvesting tank for students & irrigation of garden, it will at least give 6-8 hours drinking water to students.

Similarly, Janta Vidya Mandir Inter College in Udairajganj is school with capacity of 750 students. The area does not have water supply system. So, students drink water from handpumps. Rainwater Harvesting will provide them safe drinking water atleast.

60 people, 10 families.Average number of family member is 6 in these villages.

Done survey in the village selected & meeting with SHG.

People Getting Other Benefits: 8

At least 4 Masons will get trained about ECOSAN Toilets & Rainwater Harvesting. While 4 staff of SES capacity will build. So, they can easily replicate it in future.

Training to 4 Masons & 4 staff of SES.

While interacting with members of Self Help Group & school/college teacher & student. They’ll sensitize on importance of sanitation & drinking water in their lives respectively.

Application Type: Program Funding

Start Date: 2012-09-01

Completion Date: 2013-03-31

Technology Used:

ECO SAN TOILETS:

SES has already worked in the targeted village. They will sensitize people on benefit of having eco san toilets in their house. With help of already existed SHG, families will be selected where toilet has to be constructed. The most important thing women are members of these group & they can help in change behavior of whole family regarding sanitation especially usage of toilets.

Rainwater Harvesting:

In case of RWH in post graduate college & school. The tank will store 10000 litre water each. There will be catchment of water harvesting which directly receives the rainfall and provides water to the system. It will be at terrace. The filter will used to remove suspended pollutants from rainwater collected over roof. There will be Coarse mesh which can prevent the passage of debris. There will Locally available material such as plain galvanised iron sheet for gutters. These gutters all around the edge of a sloping roof will collect and transport rainwater to the storage tank. There will be PVC pipelines or drains that carry rainwater from the catchment or rooftop area to the harvesting system. It will use filter to remove suspended pollutants from rainwater collected over roof. A filter may filled with filtering media such as fibre, coarse sand and gravel layers to remove debris and dirt from water before it enters the storage tank or recharge structure.The shape of tank shall be rectangular. Rainwater may be charged into recharge pit. It’ll be 1.5m to 3m wide and 2m to 3m deep. The excavated pit is lined with a brick/stone wall with openings (weep-holes) at regular intervals. The top area of the pit can be covered with a perforated cover.

Phases:

It’ll complete in one phase. Yes, funding will be split in two parts. One for eco san toilets & other for rain water harvesting tank.

Community Organization:

The project is to be implemented involving the Self Help Group in the villages. It will be implemented in a participation of members. They will plan, execute and monitor the programme.

In the college, there will a committee of 6 people which will have 2 teaching staff and 4 students. They will plan for programme & monitor the programme with support of project staff.

Government Interaction:

Central Government has started Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan (NBA).Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan (NBA) is programme to ensure sanitation facilities in rural areas with broader goal to eradicate the practice of open defecation. It fgives nominal subsidy in the form of incentive is given to rural poor households for construction of toilets. It gives strong emphasis on Information, Education and Communication (IEC), Capacity Building and Hygiene Education for effective behaviour change with involvement of PRIs, CBOs, and NGOs etc. Individual household latrines (IHHL) is one intervention areas of NBA are other than School Sanitation and Hygiene Education (SSHE), Community Sanitary Complex, Anganwadi toilets supported by Rural Sanitary Marts (RSMs) and Production Centers (PCs). The main goal of the GOI is to eradicate the practice of open defecation by 2017.

Considering NBA & conditions of sanitation in these villages, SES has conceptualized idea of ECO SAN Toilets. Organization will like to bring some subsidy from relevant government department.

Ancillary activities:

At least 4 members of SES & 4 masons will be trained on construction of ECO SAN Toilet & rainwater harvesting. SES is building capacity of its staff because it would like to replicate aforesaid model in other places at large. 4 Masons will be trained to understand the process & be a master trainers to other when it’ll be replicated.

Other Issues:

One of reason people is not using government made toilets because most of them are not constructed fully. Toilets are made in low budget which no wants to use.
Government funds were given to the people without any discussion or meeting. People were not aware about the end product, they got money they build a small structure in their houses. It was also found that some people use constructed toilet as store room.We need to change behavior & attitude of beneficiary other than construction of infrastructure

Maintenance Revenue:

In villages, SHG members will be linked to bank, so other can also construct eco san toilets. They will aware & their capacity is build.

At college & school level, ownership will transfer to administration. They will take care of maintenance & operational cost after rainwater harvest tank is constructed.

Maintenance Cost: $727

Metrics:

After Six Months
- Follow up by staff on no. of people in family using constructed toilets through SMS
- Staff take feedback from student colleges & SMS.

After One Year:
Replication of ecosan toilets in same & other villages as well as of Rain water hravesting

Cost: $3,683

    Hi Sandeep,

    Can you provide a bit more detail about your eco-san design?
    Whom have you learnt from?

    Are you building the bottom?
    If yes, Do you have access to a mold or will make one?
    If no, using ceramic pan? E.g. from Shital Ceramics?

    What is the size of the structure?

    That may also help determine your budget is accurate - it might be more!

      Dear Prakash Ji,

      As I have mentioned that toilets remain unused for purpose they are created for. The reason behind that is people see no reason to change their behaviour because awareness of associated health risk is limited or ignored. As a strategy,we shall aware them of negative effects of poor sanitation, sensitized them about fecal oral transmission route, understand them the link between sanitation & health.Issue will also highlighted with advantage of convenience, privacy & dignity among community people.It is self realization strategy where community realize adverse consequences of prevailing old practice of open toilets & adopt improved hygienic practices.It is not limited to construction of toilets only but focus is on simulation of effective demand of toilets in community as whole . We are starting from individual household with idea that efforts will gradually include entire community.

        What is the population of the villages in which where you building 5 toilets in each?

        I am wondering if 5 household toilets will be enough of a role-model for the rest of the community. Eco-san toilets are harder to showcase and share - it requires training before use. Maybe its better to do all 10 in one community.

        You plan to work with the beneficiaries to ensure use and adoption of Eco-San, and you plan to spread awareness in the larger community and create demand. Both activities are different and require different strategies, plans, and materials.

        So please clarify the steps in starting from individual households to gradually include entire community.

      Dear Kusum Ji,

      Why Ecosan Toilets??
      The Ecosan toilet technology is effective alternative solution.The reason is technology deals with human excreta: containment,sanitisation (treatment) and recycling.It Offers a safe sanitation solution that prevents disease and promotes health by successfully and hygienically removing pathogen-rich excreta from the immediate environment.We are going for ecosan toilets because:

      -It is environmentally sound because it doesn’t contaminate groundwater and also saves scarce water resources .

      -It recovers and recycles the nutrients from the excreta and, thus, creates a valuable resource to reduce the need for artificial fertilizers in agriculture from what is usually regarded as a waste product.

      Does People aspire for luxurious pour toilets:

      It is a misconception that people aspire for luxurious pour flush toilets.At present, most Ecosan toilets are constructed in poorer communities with financial subsidies as a promotional tool. Unfortunately, this feeds the existing misconception that the Ecosan toilets are specifically developed for poorer sections of the community.An Comprehensive Orientation is needed for larger section of society.

      Mobilisation Strategy:

      Every technology needs some user education and orientation so does Ecosan toilets. For new users, Ecosan may introduce another level of complexity at the initial stage. Therefore, users need to be made fully aware of their responsibilities and provided with appropriate instructions and follow-ups until confident in handling operational problems.iIt can be done through:
      -Awareness Generation
      - Management requirement

      The strategy is given in reply to Prakash Ji above..

      As for community, Literacy rate is quite low & mostly dependent on agriculture. They are never sensitized about hygienic practices so they are using traditional practices.

        Thou your project area has good rainfall, your earlier project implementation says you have covered good number of houses under rainwater harvesting , so I am curious to know the results/opinion of the community.

        Also if safe drinking water is a issue , there are other methods strategies to work on it, rather than rainwater harvesting.

    • Sandeep Srivastava of Shohratgarh Environmental Society (SES)

      concrete roofs may create some difficulties when it comes to collecting potable water. There are a various minerals in Concrete .So, there is no guarantee the concrete can not contaminated. It could never be guaranteed that Concreted roof would be as safe as some other types of roofing material.

          I see the question was about a concrete roof on the RWH pit for safety and protrection. The answer was about contamination from concrete into potable water which i don't see happening because there is little contact between the roof of the RWH tank and water.

There are a various minerals in Concrete .So, there is no guarantee the concrete can not contaminated. It could never be guaranteed that Concreted roof would be as safe as some other types of roofing material."

              I don't see how the roof would pose contamination problem. In fact a strong solid roof will protect better than mesh and be safer. And the roof does not come into contact of the potable water.

              Concrete is very highly used in RWH tank construction around the world for potable purposes. Waterproofing is possible. Its true in most construction in Bangalore (the RWH tank at my home for example). Otherwise you have to go to very traditional ones with limestone (chunna) layering. Or plastic tanks (as in the application i refer to below). Your brick approach will lose water very fast, depending on surrounding rock, clay, sand composition.

            Then i don't understand your argument that: "concrete roofs may create some difficulties when it comes to collecting potable water. There are a various minerals in Concrete .So, there is no guarantee the concrete can not contaminated. It could never be guaranteed that Concreted roof would be as safe as some other types of roofing material."

            I don't see how the roof would pose contamination problem. In fact a strong solid roof will protect better than mesh and be safer. And the roof does not come into contact of the potable water.

            Concrete is very highly used in RWH tank construction around the world for potable purposes. Waterproofing is possible. Its true in most construction in Bangalore (the RWH tank at my home for example). Otherwise you have to go to very traditional ones with limestone (chunna) layering. Or plastic tanks (as in the application i refer to below). Your brick approach will lose water very fast, depending on surrounding rock, clay, sand composition.

        I see the question was about a concrete roof on the RWH pit for safety and protrection. The answer was about contamination from concrete into potable water which i don't see happening because there is little contact between the roof of the RWH tank and water.

    Its very hard to show students that groundwater is being recharged. If they are not using / drinking the water, then i don't see what this project will show.

      And a way to extract water.

      And to clean the tank once a year.

      Plus it would be nice to see some analysis of how much rainfall you get, how much you can store and how long will it last.

      Please search for information in PWX and IWP.

      One application currently under review and its Q&A are particularly relevant and you can ask more questions for info and clarifications if you want.

    This project has to be divided into 2 parts:

    1.The RWH part is too preliminary in concept, design, and outcome and should not be funded.

    2. The sanitation part is good, needed, and plays in the existing community relationship and the historic work done by SES.

    review by (only shown to members)

    since the organization and projects have good number of year experience , better to conduct the need based programme after assessment of area and community participation ,directing towards development of the area using PWX support as a tool.
    Best wishes for all the team members.

    review by (only shown to members)

    pen defecation and lack of sanitation facilities are major issues, hence the project addresses a big need. Behavioral change activities will be of crucial importance. SES, being very local, must have a very good connectivity with the people of the area.
