“How to … build an Arborloo and a Fossa Alterna?” : an ecological approach to sanitation in Uganda using Arborloo and Fossa Alterna

This paper gives clear instructions on how to build an Arborloo and a Fossa Alterna. The Arborloo is a shallow pit latrine that is abandoned once it is full ; the latrine house is removed, the brick or concrete “ground collar” removed to a new pit site and a new shallow pit is dug for use. The Fossa Alterna is a system of two shallow pits being used alternately. It is a sound on-site EcoSan system for small plots in rural and urban areas. The pits are usually bigger than for the Arborloo and last longer.

Abstract

This paper gives clear instructions on how to build an Arborloo and a Fossa Alterna. The Arborloo is a shallow pit latrine that is abandoned once it is full ; the latrine house is removed, the brick or concrete “ground collar” removed to a new pit site and a new shallow pit is dug for use. The Fossa Alterna is a system of two shallow pits being used alternately. It is a sound on-site EcoSan system for small plots in rural and urban areas. The pits are usually bigger than for the Arborloo and last longer.
