Sanitation near Jakarta

I am a watsan engineer based in Indonesia, Jakarta and am faced with a difficult situation. Below are the details:

  • Location: Tangerang (30 Km from West Jakarta, Indonesia),
  • Disaster: Flood with Water level reaching 70 cm -Number of people affected: 500 People, Number of households/houses: 99 (1 well per house), -Project scope: To provide sanitation for the all village under SPHERE standards (i.e. 25 latrines with adequate distance between latrine and water sources/well),
  • Problems I am facing:

a. lack of time : 1 month to complete the project b. lack of space : no space in the village, c. 5 m distance space max between houses,

Solutions I can think of :

  • Using bio-filters but we got problem such as price, volume, etc. I am in the phase of emergency so need to take into account Sphere standards, using biofilters ok with Sphere or not?)

  • Using the composting latrine but the maintenance is difficult for community.

Please give me advice to solve my problems in the site.

Regards,

Sigit
