In 1982 the National Building Research Institute (NBRI) of the CSIR embarked on a project to investigate the provision of appropriate technology engineering services for low-cost housing. Up to then very little research into site criteria for on-site sanitation systems other than septic tank systems had been done anywhere. However; engineers often need such criteria. The specific site criteria proposed In this article should be applied with caution, as they are intended only as an indication of the suitability of the terrain for on-site sanitation systems.
