Estimating Fecal Sludge Generation for a City/Town
Are you planning FSSM for a city and wondering how much Fecal sludge (FS) gets generated?
Estimation of fecal sludge is an early requirement for planning management of fecal sludge for a town or a city. This exercise guides learners to estimate the fecal sludge produced in their town or city using different methods. It lists the data required to assess FS generation by each method and draws comparisons among the three methods. Through practical exercises, learners understand how to estimate fecal sludge.
