Latrine Photos

This process shows training for building latrines. We're someplace in San Jose de Ocoa. The process proceeds as follows:
  1. Dig a hole about three feet deep. Reinforce it with a stone wall, called an "encache." When the mortar in the stone wall is dry, you should continue to dig down about another seven feet. Make sure not to dig out under the reinforcement wall; the rest of the hole should have a smaller diameter than the inside of the encache. People produce about three cubic feet of solid waste a year; dig a hole that will last a while.
  2. Make a molde and pour concrete for a slab to cover the hole, or sit on top of the encache. The slab has two holes; a shithole and a vent hole.
  3. When the concrete slab is finished, drag it to to rest on the encache.
  4. Build a shack on top of the hole.
There are other details, which I can discuss via email.
