This book deals with the treatment of faecal material and supernatant water removed from on-site and decentralized sanitation facilities and systems. Its main focus is on treatment facility design but this can never be viewed in isolation. Rather, it must reflect local conditions, start from a realistic assessment of the load on the plant, and take account of the final destination of the liquid and solid products of treatment. With this in mind, the first part of the book provides general guidance on the ways in which the context will influence treatment plant choices and designs, and sets out the steps to be followed when planning for a new or improved treatment facility. Later chapters focus on the selection and design of systems for the treatment of faecal material removed from on-site and decentralized sanitation facilities. The early chapters should be of interest to municipal planners and engineers with treatment plant design responsibilities. The later, more technical, chapters will be of interest mainly to design engineers. Those with more general interests should also benefit from reading the short review sections that conclude each chapter other than this introductory chapter.
