Borehole water near squatter camps.

  • You can’t see from what direction the water flow.
    • Every shack in the squatter camps has a pit toilet.
    • That pit toilet is just a hole in the ground and that is it.
    • There is no standard that is followed.
    • As with complexes there is a very strict standard that must be followed by the letter.
    • The French drain is the most common septic tank.
    • With the pit toilets the rain water and that of the people filters down into the ground.
    • Don’t think it filters the waste out.
    • No it stays in the ground and water.
    • When there is a heavy rain the underground water rice and this is where the problem is.
