WA Section Toilet Upgrade
The open space created by the medium density housing built in WA section has been earmarked by the community for sanitation provision. PEP supported the community to design an improved sanitation facility – based on their requirements and national policy norms and standards (which are currently not being implemented in most sanitation blocks in Informal settlements). The design and Bill of Quantities were submitted to the city in 2021 but progress has been slow due to the resistance of a single resident who does not want the sewerage pipe to go under his yard. In 2022 PEP is attempting to kickstart the project by applying pressure to both the city and community to resolve the issue. When a firm date is set for installation PEP will workshop the management and maintenance of the toilet with the community.
