Excerpt from page 1
This book focuses on composting toilets (also known as dry waterless and biological toilets and non-liquid saturated systems) because among wastewater treatment technologies they are one of the most direct ways to avoid pollution and conserve water and resources. Of course most people who install composting toilets do so simply because they need to have a toilet system where a septic system cannot be installed.
Long used by a developing countries parks off-the-grid homeowners and cottage owners around the world composting toilet systems are now making their way into mainstream year-round homes for many reasons.

The Big Flush
Every day most of us use an average of 3.3 gallons (12.5 liters) of drinking-quality water to flush a toilet just once. At 5.2 flushed per day the average American uses 6 263 gallons (23 705 liters) of drinking water each year to flush away 1 300 pounds of excrement. By the year 2000 that means 1 615 590 954 000 gallons (6 trillion liters) of water will be flushed away daily in the United States!
