We believe achieving SDG6 is the business opportunity of the decade, and that ‘sani-preneurs’ like you are the future of sanitation. We value your time and your expertise, and hope you will spend a few minutes helping us shape the future of The Toilet board Coalition.]]>

For ferrocement the covers are specified to be about 3-5 mm on either side. With single reinforcement cage with two wire meshes, the overall thickness should not be more than 25 mm in any case. This will further reduce the cost.
Moreover, it is feasible to precast the floor, walls and lids and assemble the tank at site either inside the hole (for which a much larger whole is to be made) or outside on ground and lower the septic tank into the hole. I am attaching a photograph which is self explanatory. About 500 such ferrocement precast tanks were made in 1992 and are still functional in India.
The super structure is also in precast ferrocement.]]>

Maybe it would be more efficient to cast a few round smaller tanks above ground and lower them after curing (and leak testing) with a tripod or so into much smaller excavations? Afterwards they can be interconnect with PVC pipes like commonly done with prefabricated FRP septic tanks.

One of the big strengths of ferrocement is also that it easily allows for round etc. forms that should be significantly more resistant to inside and outside stresses that might cause leakages after a while.]]>

How wonderful to know of your interest in translating sanitation articles on Wikipedia into Portuguese!

Do you know of special needs or do you have favorite articles?


Thank you!

Nothing is better than hearing from a journalist! Journalists are the ones who really get the word out and educate the public on World Water Day and on World Toilet Day. And you have a lot of sanitation news to report to the world from Nairobi.

Please, can you help the Edit-a-thon committee know which topics and Wikipedia articles are most important to journalist in your opinion? In your experience?

Thanks, Carol]]>

So good to know there will be Edit-a-thon participation in Nepal. I hope you can pass the word to your friends and colleagues.

Did you know you can promote your local World Water Day event with your logo or a picture on the UN World Water Day site? Here is the link.www.worldwaterday.org/submit-event/

Is that your picture on the Sakcham Rural Nepal website? Your message there is very inspiring.

On behalf of the whole Edit-a-thon team at SuSanA,
Best wishes,

Carol]]>

Yes, I think we can help the general public learn about SDG6 through this Edit-a-thon. Did you know there is not yet a Wikipedia article on SDG6 (only for the SDGs in general)? That's a task for us.

I hope you can get together with others in Abuja at the office or in a coffee shop. Stay tuned. There will be a video chat room where we can meet face to face.
