SANITATION EDUCATION

Philippine Regulations on Sanitation and Wastewater Systems (DOWNLOADABLE HERE IN PDF FILE)

PCWS-ITNF is widely disseminating the international edition of this compilation by Engr. Bonifacio B. Magtibay. 

PCWS-ITNF is also working with communities to make them stewards of the environment, making sanitation a life skill.  Information materials, focus group discussions, participatory learning activities and capacity building trainings on water and sanitation are resorted to.
   
     

WASH INFRASTRUCTURES

PCWS-ITNF has made hundreds of ferro-cement rainwater harvesting tanks, reservoirs, iron removal filters, sedimentation tanks, urine diverting toilets, low-cost wastewater treatment facilities, and biogas digesters. These ferro-cement structures that PCWS-ITNF continue to build are low-cost.  PCWS-ITNF makes it a point to work with local masons and even inexperienced community volunteers on these structures so that the knowledge and skills on the construction of these low-cost water supply and sanitation facilities are transferred to them.
