Greetings - Are there any jurisdictional guidelines for the placement of the latrine? There actually is quite a bit of general info out there on the web as to recommended placement of the latrine from water sources and the main structure. If the latrine is placed a distance from the home is the latrine square footage to be included in the square footage of the main living structure? The other concern is accessibility during the middle of the night as well as community usage based on the latrines proximity to the main house. Thank You for any direction you may share.
Hello Giacomo Cassio, Thank you for your question and concerns. You asked: “Are there any jurisdictional guidelines for the placement of the latrine?” No open sewage. The cistern flush toilet system and pour-flush toilet type are the convention. Either of these could be a room within the building or an out unit, as long as the toilet system has the water seal to avoid the problems associated with oudor and insects.
Within the budget of the Mud House Design 2014, here are successful examples: The Easy Latrine system is a best example, see it on YouTube: by www.ideorg.org It is a simple, pour-flush latrine, with an offset tank to collect the feces and urine. Easy Latrine system consists of of three precast concrete rings that are dropped into a six-foot hole to act as a reservoir; a concrete slab on that; and a pan”. The goal was to design a latrine that is effective, inexpensive and attractive to user.
