Waste Disposal

January 20, 2011 by  

The recent cholera outbreak in earthquake-ravaged Haiti demonstrates what can happen in a survival scenario when proper sanitation protocols are not followed.

If you find yourself without a functioning sanitation system, you need to take steps necessary to ensure the safety of your party. That means properly disposing of waste.

A 5-gallon bucket makes an excellent waste receptacle if filled with dirt or, even better, kitty litter. Or, you can purchase an enzyme product that is used in sewage treatment plants, septic tanks, cesspools drains and grease traps, according to Emergency Essentials’® Tips For Preparedness.

If you don’t have a bucket you can also dig a latrine trench about four feet long and 18 inches wide. You can lay logs across the trench to use as a seat. Cover feces with small amounts of dirt to reduce odor. Lime, if you have some, will also help to eliminate odor. If the odor gets too strong, fill in the trench and build another.

But remember; always build your latrine downhill and as far away from your water supply as practicable.

    I saw a program on the Military channel about the fight in North Africa during WW2. They said the british general Montgomery gave strick orders about how latrines were to be set up and maintained to reduce the problem with flies in the desert. The germans did not have such relatively high levels of sanitation and they were plagued with diahrea and associated illness due to flies. The great german general Rommel was not spared from the contamination carried by flies that visited the latrine and then contaminated the food supply. The Germans lost in North Africa no doubt hampered by their poor sanitation.
