You take what you've got and turn it into what you need: Building septic systems in Runashitu.

November 18, 2017

Two years ago, the community of Runashitu was excited to have toilets built in their community. But with the initial installation, there was a major missing piece for this location with a very high water table: a septic system. Under the direction of our engineer, Lynn Smith, community health promoters Jaime and Lucilla pulled a minga together (a community collaboration), and used available materials to create simple septic systems. Using former oil barrels connected with PVC pipe, the two tank system now creates a safer method for processing toilet waste.
