المُلخص التنفيذي

تُعتبر الحُفرة الواحدة المُطورة المُهواة Single Ventilated Improved Pit (VIP) تطويرًا لتقنية الحُفرة الواحدة وذلك بسبب تدفق الهواء المستمر عبر أنبوب التهوية لطرد الروائح، كما يعمل الأنبوب أيضًا كمصيدة للذباب لأنه يخرج ناحية الضوء.

وبالرغم من بساطة هذه التقنية، فإنها تكون خالية تمامًا من الروائح إذا صُممت جيدًا، وتعتبر أكثر جذبًا للاستخدام من بعض التقنيات الأخرى التي تعتمد على توافر المياه.

ينجذب الذباب المتواجد بالحُفرة إلى الضوء في الجزء العلوي من أنبوب التهوية. وعندما يتجه نحو الضوء محاولًا الخروج يتم احتباسه بمصيدة الذباب ويموت. كما تسمح التهوية أيضًا بخروج الروائح من الحُفرة مما يقلل من جذب الذباب.

المزايا
انخفاض الذباب والروائح بشكل ملحوظ (مقارنة بالحُفر غير المهواة).
يمكن بناؤها وإصلاحها بالمواد المتاحة محليًا.
التكاليف الإنشائية مُنخفضة (لكنها متعددة) وذلك يعتمد على المواد المستخدمة وعُمق الحُفرة.
تتطلب مساحة صغيرة من الأرض.
العيوب
تخفيض محدود في نسبة الاحتياج الحيوي للأكسجين (BOD) ومُسببات الأمراض مع احتمال تلويث المياه الجوفية.
تكاليف التفريغ قد تكون كبيرة مقارنة بالتكاليف الرئيسية.
تتطلب الحمأة معالجة ثانوية و/أو تفريغ مناسب.

المُلاءَمَة

Factsheet Block Body

 تكون عمليات المُعالجة في الحُفرة الواحدة المُطورة المُهواة )الهوائية، اللاهوائية، التجفيف، التسميد، أو غيره( محدودة، ولذلك فإن معدل تخفيض مُسببات الأمراض والتحلّل العضوي غير كبير، ولكن بما أن فضلات الجسم يتم احتواؤها، فذلك يحد من انتقال مُسببات الأمراض للمستخدمين. وتُعد هذه التقنية متطورة بشكلٍ ملحوظ عن الحُفر الواحدة التقليدية أو التغوط في العراء.

وتكون الحُفرة الواحدة المُطورة المُهواة مناسبة للمناطق الريفية وشبه الحضرية، على عكس المناطق المُكتظة بالسكان، حيث يكون من الصعب تفريغها و/أو لا توجد مساحة كافية للترشيح. كما أنها مناسبة في حالة نُدرَة المياه، وحيث يكون منسوب المياه الجوفية مُنخفضًا. وينبغي أن تتواجد في منطقة جيدة التهوية لضمان التهوية الفعالة. كما أنها غير مناسبة في حالة التربة الصخرية أو المدكوكة )التي يصعب حَفرها(، أو للأماكن التي تتكرر بها الفيضانات.

 

اعتبارات التصميم

Factsheet Block Body

 ينبغي ألا يقل القطر الداخلي لأنبوب التهوية عن 110 ملليمتر يمتد إلى أكثر من 300 ملليمتر فوق أعلى نقطة من البنية الفوقية للمِرحاض )الحمَّام) يخلق مرور الرياح أعلى أنبوب التهوية ضغطًا ساحباً للهواء من داخلها وذلك يُحفز دورة الهواء في الحُفرة. يتم سحب الهواء عبر واجهة المستخدم إلى الحُفرة، ويتحرك صعودًا داخل أنبوب التهوية خارجاً إلى الجو. وينبغى مراعاة عدم إعاقة الأشياء مثل الأشجار أو المنازل لتيار الهواء. تكون التهوية أفضل في المناطق التي بها رياح، أما في حالة التهوية الضعيفة، فيمكن تحسين فاعليتها بطلاء الأنابيب باللون الأسود، فإن الفارق الحراري بين الحُفرة )الباردة( وأنبوب التهوية )الدافئ( يخلق تيارًا هوائيًا صاعدًا يسحب الهواء والروائح ويُخرجها من الحُفرة. ولاختبار فعالية التهوية، يمكن وضع سيجارة مشتعلة فوق فتحة واجهة المستخدم، حيث يتم سحب الدخان إلى الأسفل داخل الحُفرة ومن ثم إلى فتحة التهوية ولا يتبقى منه شيء في الحمَّام.

يجب أن تكون فتحات الشبكة السلكية لمصيدة الذباب كبيرة بما فيه الكفاية لمنع انسدادها بالتراب وللسماح بسريان الهواء بحُرِّية. أثبتت شبكات الألومنيوم السلكية ذات فتحات الثقوب بين 1.2 إلى 1.5 ملليمتر أنها الأكثر فعالية. لا يقل عمق الحُفرة - في العادة - عن 3 أمتار وقطرها من 1 إلى 1.5 متر، ويتوقف ذلك على عدد المستخدمين. ويمكن أن تستمر الحُفر العميقة لمدة تصل إلى 20 سنة أو أكثر.

بينما تتسرب السوائل من الحُفرة وتنتقل عبر التربة المسامية غير المُشبَّعة، فإن الجراثيم المسببة للأمراض تُمتص على سطح حبيبات التربة، وبهذه الطريقة يمكن إزالة مُسببات الأمراض قبل أن تصل إلى المياه الجوفية. وتختلف درجة الإزالة حسب نوع التربة، والمسافة المقطوعة، والرطوبة وعوامل بيئية أخرى، ولذلك فإنه من الصعب تقدير المسافة الضرورية بين الحُفرة ومصدر المياه، ولكن يُنصح أن تكون المسافة الأفقية بينهما حوالي 30 مترًا على الأقل للحد من التعرض للتلوث الميكروبي.

وعندما لا يكون من الممكن حَفر حُفرة عميقة، أو عندما يكون مستوى المياه الجوفية عاليًا جدًا، فإن بناء حُفرة مرتفعة يمكن أن يكون بديلًا مُجديًا، حيث يمكن تمديد الحُفرة غير العميقة عن طريق بناء حلقات أو كُتل خرسانية بشكل رأسي فوقها، ويمكن بناء الحُفرة المُرتفعة في مكان تحدث فيه فيضانات أو سيول مُتكررة؛ للحفاظ على المياه من التدفُّق إلى الحُفرة أثناء الأمطار الغزيرة.

يمكن تطوير وتحسين مستوى المِرحاض ذي الحُفرة الواحدة المُطورة المُهواة ليصبح مِرحاض ذو الحُفرة المزدوجة المُطورة المُهواة  حيث إنها تحتوي على حُفرة إضافية، ولذلك عندما تكون واحدة منهما قيد الاستخدام، يمكن تصريف وتخمر وتحلل محتويات الحُفرة الممتلئة.

وإذا تم استخدام واجهة المُستخدم الفاصلة للبول، فسيتم تجميع البُراز فقط في الحُفرة وبذلك يقل الرشح.

الجوانب الصحية / القبول

Factsheet Block Body

تُعتبر الحُفرة الواحدة المُطورة المُهواة من خيارات الصرف الصحي المقبولة بشكل جيد، والنظيفة والمريحة. ومع ذلك فتوجد بعض المخاوف الصحية:.

  السوائل المرتشحة قد تُسبب تلوث المياه الجوفية.

  قد تكون الحُفر عُرضة للهدم و/أو الطفح أثناء الفيضانات.

  المخاطر الصحية من الذباب لا يتم تجنبها بشكل كامل بالتهوية فقط.

 

التشغيل والصيانة

Factsheet Block Body

للحفاظ على الحُفرة الواحدة المُطورة المُهواة من الذباب والروائح، فإن ذلك يتطلب التنظيف المستمر والصيانة بشكلٍ منتظم، ويجب إزالة الذباب الميت، وشبكات العنكبوت، والغبار وغيرها من العوالق عن شبكة التهوية لضمان التدفق الجيد للهواء.

Ventilated Improved Latrine Construction in the Slum Areas of Kampala, Uganda

The Urban Affordable Clean Toilets (U-ACT) project aims at overcoming the constraints to private sanitation investment in poor urban areas. Field research was conducted in 40 randomly selected low-income areas of Uganda’s capital Kampala where people rely on on-site sanitation. The sanitation situation in these urban slum zones is characterised by a high number of users per toilet, and full or overflowing latrines that are not regularly emptied. This factsheet provides information on the construction and cost details of ventilated improved pit (VIP) latrines.

Guidelines for Assessing the Risk to Groundwater from On-Site Sanitation

Many people in developing countries rely upon untreated groundwater supplies for their drinking water (e.g. from drilled boreholes, tube wells, dug wells or springs). The introduction of on-site sanitation systems might lead to groundwater contamination. The purpose of this manual is to provide guidance on how to assess and reduce the risk of contamination of groundwater supplies from on-site sanitation systems and is aimed at those responsible for planning low cost water supply and sanitation schemes.

Ecodesign: The Bottom Line

There is no single design solution to sanitation. But there are universal principles for systematically and safely detoxifying human excreta, without contaminating, wasting or even using water. Ecological sanitation design — which is focused on sustainability through reuse and recycling — offers workable solutions that are gaining footholds around the world, as Nature explores on the following pages through the work of Peter Morgan in Zimbabwe, Ralf Otterpohl and his team in Germany, Shunmuga Paramasivan in India, and Ed Harrington and his colleagues in California.
