Solution Overview & Benefits

A Urine Diversion Latrine (UDL) is a single pit with a built-in system that separates feces, urine, and cleaning water. Urine diversion increases the life of the pit and the urine collected can be used as a plant nutrient. A UDL requires little maintenance, only the occasional de-sludging. Additionally, it is not as costly as an ecosan toilet, but comparatively more expensive than a standard pit latrine.
