That’s why, essential goal of the study is to investigate of water supply and sanitationFile Size: KB. Household latrines may be called for because of the convenience they offer to users. Good sanitation may be a status symbol. Existing excrete disposal methods may result in unacceptable pollution of surface water, soil or groundwater. Sometimes a demand for improved sanitation is associated with water supply. For example, a funding agency may require latrines .   This topic has 9 replies, 8 voices, and was last updated 12 years, 2 months ago by Melissa.
