Does anyone know the accumulation rate of a closed pit latrine in an ETC

I do realise it large depends how and how often the latrine slab might be cleaned, but perhaps there are some indicative figures based on practical experience in an ETC or CTC.

Hello,

This discussion on the SuSanA forum is about sludge accumulation at the bottom of pits. As you will see it is a big topic with no definite answer, but I suggest you read the whole discussion and see for yourself.

If any solid waste goes in the pit, it also has a huge influence so be wary of it.
