In household wastewater, urine contains considerably large amount of nutrients derived from agriculture whereas faeces contain most of the pathogens with a potential of causing diseases. Therefore, source control
of faeces from household wastewater prevents these disease-causing pathogens gaining access to water bodies where they survive longer than on land and pose a long-term threat to human health. This paper shows the importance of source-separating toilets and describes the existing policy making guidelines connected to ecological sanitation.
