This guide presents a toilet system that you can do yourself without relying on a coordinated and timely response by someone else. This system served after earthquakes destroyed sanitation systems in Haiti and New Zealand. This guide is for planning ahead and preparing kits, whether for yourself, your household, your apartment building, or your block. This flexible system is built around ubiquitous and freely available 5-gallon buckets.
Based on "A Sewer Catastrophe Companion", PHLUSH created a short and easily understandable Restorative Sanitation display which can be downloaded as a PDF below. Further information on the display can be found at the PHLUSH website (link provided below).
