New Delhi promised to build hundreds of public toilets for the 2010 Commonwealth Games. Only 9 were built, and none of them are functioning.

The report features rural development minister Jairam Ramesh, the inevitable Bindeshwar Pathak of Sulabh International and UNICEF India’s Suzanne Coates.

I am not sure if the greywater is mixed or not (I would need to find out). Good point about the anti-biotics and disinfectants .. need to consider these for other microbiological processes too.. UV is effective but as you say the stream would have to be very clear so not so sure that would work.. maybe ovens but I doubt they will have been desig […]
