Content - Summary

This case study is about a large-scale project of eThekwini Municipality (Durban), where free basic water supply and sustainable sanitation in form of UDDTs (urine diversion dehydration toilets) have been provided in rural and peri-urban areas on household level.

This rural water and sanitation project is unique in South Africa in that it integrates the delivery of household water facilities (yard tanks) and appropriate sanitation services (UDDT) as well as household education and training as a single ‘package’. Since 2003 the municipality has delivered approximately 75,000 water and sanitation packages to un-served areas. Based on a household size of 6 people on average, this equates to 450,000 people served.
