|—||S.L. Star, “ethnography of infrastructure”|
I write this blog to debunk the mythology, misunderstanding, and ignorance surrounding what in policy circles is more euphemistically called “human waste” management. This sanitary language does not adequately capture the condition for 2.6 billion people world wide who lack access to adequate and hygienic water and waste systems.
This blog will draw into question the history of development, current planning paradigms, and engineered technologies used to address concerns related to water and sanitation. I hope you join me and others in the movement to end the inefficient and inhumane practices that characterize the blind faith flushing of our precious earthly resources down the toilet drain.
