A Sewer Catastrophe Companion

Check out our guide for emergency sanitation.

This illustrated guide presents a series of graduated responses you can do to keep yourself and your community safe from disease during the short term and long term disruption of sewer services. It’s a solution for managing excreta that’s not excreting problems later.
This flexible system is built around ubiquitous and freely available 5-gallon buckets and based on World Health Organization guidelines for excreta reuse. On two occasions it has been successfully deployed from available resources with little pre-planning.

Much thanks to the Portland Bureau of Emergency ManagementPHLUSH and PNCA’s Collaborative Design MFA for their contributions to the creation of this guide.
