Content - Summary

This case study is about the first pilot and demonstration project of the Water Services Trust Fund (WSTF) on public sanitation. The EU-Sida-GTZ Ecosan Promotion Project (EPP) spearheaded the implementation in conjunction with a local construction company. The Naivasha Bus Park is a regional bus station that is located in the small town Naivasha in Rift Valley Province (2 hours from Nairobi). It had a neglected and unhygienic public toilet block managed by the town council.

The new public toilet block consists of 2 toilet cubicles, 1 shower and urinal for men and 3 toilet cubicles and 1 shower from women. A biogas plant was constructed to pre-treat the wastewater for reduction of pollution loads released into the sewer system and generation of biogas for cooking purposes. A water kiosk was integrated into the facility to serve in parallel as the operator room for the public toilet. The facility serves about 300 visitors per day (status 2009) and provides biogas for cooking for a nearby kiosk. The facility is managed by the local Water Service Provider, called NAIVAWASS, who contracted a local CBO to operate the toilet on a pay-per-use concept.

More information on the whole management setup can be found in the public sanitation tool kit from WSTF which is also in this library (put WSTF into the search field).
