Ayotamuno, M. J.
International Journal of Environmental Education and Information, v12 n2 p121-28 Apr-Jun 1993
This survey of the Port Harcourt, Nigeria, sewage disposal system exemplifies sewage disposal in the developing world. Results reveal that some well-constructed and maintained drains, as well as many open drains and septic tanks, expose women and children to the possibility of direct contact with parasitic organisms and threaten water resources.
