None of the Households (HHs) in the municipality has toilet or containment connected to an offsite sanitation system. 1.1% have a toilet connected to a biogas digester, 3.6% of the households have a toilet connected to a fully lined tank, 14.4% are connected to lined tank with impermeable walls and open bottom, 0.6% are connected to a septic tank and 80.4% constructed a toilet connected to an unlined pit, which all contributes to the percentage of households having toilet excluding open defecation.

Overall, the SFD graphic shows that 74% of the excreta generated are safely managed while 26% of the excreta generated are not. The safely managed percentage of FS generated by 73% of the population is temporary until the tanks and pits become full and Faecal Sludge from the containment is emptied. 1% of the FS that is safely managed and treated is due to the 1% of households having a biogas digester.
