- Re: Rate of filtration of septage through sand filter beds and technology for septage management - by: HAPitot August 28, 2014Dear Pawan, The reason is simply high rates of evapotranspiration. Because of the intermittent loading, the water is first filling pore space, and in order to maintain enough water for the plants, we were trying to keep the water level at a level just below the level of the original surface of the wetland.

- Re: Evidence-based sanitation advocacy in India to promote latrine use - by: SangitaVyas August 28, 2014Hi Giacomo, You pose an interesting question. The government doesn't focus on latrine use simply because all incentives point towards focusing on construction. Local level bureaucrats prefer construction projects to behavior change campaigns because they are more profitable. It is easier to skim money off construction projects. Politicians prefer constr […]
- Re: Rate of filtration of septage through sand filter beds and technology for septage management - by: pkjha August 28, 2014Dear Hanns-Andre The following 2 points are quoted from your post: 1. One was meant as a back up, the other two could take at least 8 loads per day from one truck that would be operating in the area.
