The excreta management tenets of a safely managed sanitation system

The safe management of faecal waste in water-based sanitation is key, as discharges of untreated wastewater into the environment create public health hazards and ultimately impact access to safe drinking water by polluting raw water sources. In a safely managed system, excreta are disposed of in a manner that protects human health and the environment to ensure that there is enough freshwater available for potable uses and that the integrity of aquatic ecosystems is not compromised.
