Among the criteria developed, feasibility under adverse ground conditions is the most important consideration which inevitably limits the options for the community. Consider a water closet on Level 2 that is approximately 100 ft away from the main-entry water service versus a water closet that is 200 ft away from the main-entry water service on Level 1. The problems are more critical in the transition areas where solid wastes, which are non-biodegradable, have accumulated. Duration of the training 15 to 30 hours Generality about this course This course is the first part of the Design of Water Supply System … (13) They can be used under the most difficult soil and ground water conditions. (15) The composting process is anaerobic and requires several months, preferably a year, to make the compost safe for use as a soil conditioner. The total static head therefore depends on the site conditions between the suction and delivery 0000002562 00000 n On the other hand, systems that have soil requirements include pit latrines, aqua privy and septic tank. This can create scarcity as not all areas may be met by the supply. al., 1980, pp. 0000000016 00000 n 54 0 obj <>/Filter/FlateDecode/ID[<365617922FA547F33A2AC1186804C48C><19C6D3F8BB2F864D8D44081987381B62>]/Index[49 15]/Info 48 0 R/Length 49/Prev 37919/Root 50 0 R/Size 64/Type/XRef/W[1 2 1]>>stream Toilet activities are considered as very private, thus, sharing the same facilities with strangers is not at all favorable. 6.6 and Table 6.6 are currently not available. The material used for anal cleaning affects the choice of technology. (12) The first is to have a a highly public system, in which any user can enter any toilet compartment not in use at that time. Conditions of the surface water justify whether the practice of disposing of waste into the water is still acceptable. Other systems that require no water or those in which water is used only for toilet hygiene are highly favorable. Included are the composting toilets, bucket latrine, vault and cartage, shallow sewer system and the small bore sewer system. Thumbnail('nav-fig0601-sm.jpg','nav-fig0601.jpg'); ?> The third approach appears to be more realistic, since a lesser number of cubicles is provided. System should not require wastehandling, most especially handling of fresh excreta. The paper concludes with a summary of recommendations that the consumers could exploit in order to face the challenges of water provision in their households. A well-designed and installed system will also be durable, minimise noise from water flow and from problems such as water hammer, and support efficient use of water. As in the case of the coastal communities, people prefer to use their individual overhung latrines or defecate on the surface waters than to use dirty communal toilets. %%EOF The following discussion identifies the limitations and potentials of these sanitation options in their application to the case study. Inspection chambers are built at intervals along the length of sewer lines to facilitate house connections and provide access for maintenance. Related to this is the separation of facilities for male and female users. The double vault composting toilet has two adjacent vaults, one which is used until it is about 3/4 full, when it is filled with earth and sealed, the other vault is used. 97 0 obj <> endobj When asked about the potentials of waste reuse, respondents claimed to be uninformed about the possibility. Some sanitation systems such as composting toilets and bucket latrines require wastehandling and re-use of excreta. This is shown in Figure 1 for the two alternative suction arrangements. %PDF-1.5 %���� Pumping systems design Nyangasi 03/14/12 Page 3 of 15 a) Total Static head The total static head (hts) in the pumping system is the water level difference between the suction and delivery reservoirs. 1�PpU9�ؤs����WWw �V��{i��I2�*#[k&��Lpc�"c�V�))����()KD��Th��H�.�` Among the sanitation systems included in this evaluation, the shallow sewer system proves to be the most feasible. The level of water service in the community, consisting mostly of hand-carried water supply from communal standpipes or bought from neighbors, limit options not requiring in-house water connection. 0000001418 00000 n CAPACITY OF WATER-SUPPLY SYSTEM Capacity factors. It can be used with low-volume pour-flush toilets in areas where the water supply is standpipe level of service. The hydraulics notions useful to design water supply system. Systems with waste or sludge transport requirement include bucket latrines, aqua privies, the septic tanks, the vault and cartage system and the composting toilets. Though the vault system requires a minimum amount of water for maintenance, it is expensive to operate and requires a highly efficient urban local authority to organize regular vault emptying. The tanks are paved and are constructed above the ground so as not to be submerged by rainwater. Design Requirements for a Water Distribution System in a Hemodialysis Center Water systems are an integral part of the dialysis facility. 63 0 obj <>stream There are a variety of components used to supply water to each dialysis machine. The World Bank studies on sanitation identified three basic approaches to the design of communal sanitation blocks. The disposal of human waste into the ground presents a potential hazard to the health of the community. The poor access networks in the community limit options of those technologies not requiring the use of large trucks to collect sullage or waste. 8.

The types of water services in a given community can be hand-carried supplies, yard taps or in-house connections. 11.Uno Winblad; and Wen Kilama, Sanitation Without Water, Monograph (Stockholm: Swedish International Development Authority, 1980), p. 23. (14) The term composting has been defined as a biological process for converting organic solid wastes into a humus like product whose chief use is as soil conditioner. In wet systems such as the pour-flush and cistern flush toilets, solid materials such as rocks, mud balls, corn cobs, stones and sticks cannot be used since these materials would cause blockage problems. With the second and third conditions, the practice of direct disposal of human waste in the water regions is not as critical as that in the transition zones. The site's proximity to the shore means that polluted runoff goes quickly to the coastal water basin with little time for natural purification through vegetation and soil. There are cases, however, when some on-site systems are modified to suit conditions of sites characterized by high groundwater level. The success of providing communal toilets does not merely depend on the ideal location and construction of the facilities. Water Design Guidelines. Among the systems discussed, the shallow sewer system proves to be the most appropriate based on the developed criteria. The composting toilet, on the other hand, involves the handling of waste only when the excreta has been transformed into non-offensive, less harmful humus. (26) Such upgrading is possible when the level of water consumption increases, as a result of an increased or improved water supply in the community. They are vital to the safe and effec-tive treatment of the patient. Witold Rybczynski, Chongrak Polprasert, and Michael McGarry, Low Cost Technology Options for Sanitation: A State-of-the-Art Review and Annotated Bibliography, (Ottawa: International Development Research Centre, 1978), p.18. In cases wherein a large percentage of the population is located above the water, determining the best site for the facility involves the analysis of tradeoffs among accessibility and convenience of users, the target number of users and the cost of construction. The use of composting toilets in general is successful when they receive a high degree of user care and attention and where wastehandling is acceptable. One possible solution to this problem is to expand the capacity of the utility but the most tangible solution is the installation of borehole and an adequate water supply system that can meet minimal installation and operating costs. 1.3. As applied in the urban poor in Brazil,(23) the system consists of small diameter pipes, normally 100 millimeters, laid on flat gradients in shallow trenches. 0000001156 00000 n Within the transitional area, careful design and construction is required to avoid water infiltration into the composting chamber. Hence, sanitation systems which can be built above the ground or those without soil requirements are favorable for the community. Incinerating toilets requires the use of oil, gas, or electricity for operation. The area is very low with +3.064m. (19) In this context, as summarized in Table 6.3, the usage of the bucket latrine in the case study is not feasible. Expensive systems such as the chemical, freeze, packaging and incinerating toilets and the waterborne sewerage are not included in the comparative analysis.(1). Why Ensure a basic and common understanding of the necessary theory to design water supply system. System should be applicable to high density settlements. Other factors favoring this system are its feasibility in high density settlement, no handling of waste by the users and minimum use of water. (18) Figure 6.3 illustrates a typical bucket latrine. 49 0 obj <> endobj Designing a system requires a minimum system pressure during peak hour demands and a reasonable working pressures during average demand periods. More expensive systems such as cistern-flush toilets with conventional sewerage or septic tanks and soakaways are technically feasible when an in-house connection is available.(9). In the context of the coastal communities, water is the preferred material for anal cleaning. One limitation it has, however, as compared with the shallow sewer system, is its feasibility in the water zone. These considerations, as summarized in Table 6.1, include environmental, community-specific physical, social and cultural factors. Access for trucks within the community is impossible. 0000003670 00000 n In theory, these options are feasible since problems of excreta being disposed directly to the surface waters and in soils with high groundwater levels are avoided. In the context of the coastal slums, wastehandling is rejected by the community, thus, making the system not acceptable. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V.

Another problem associated with this approach is the non- acceptability of household members to share the facility with other households. In areas, where access is difficult, smaller collection vehicles such as hand-or animal drawn carts with manually operated diaphragm pumps or small mechanically or electrically operated vehicles fitted with mechanically operated pumps can be used.
