May be shall we rename the thread as 'Chennai Parks Projects' ? Or are we expecting a goog volume of news on the Adyar Eco Park alone?

Ok .. you want free running water in it too!?

The problem is water will be abused. My best bet :- toilet free,

One of the teams doing surveys for public toilets have come up with a few options. Though I can not give the complete details, the shortlisted ones are like this.

Pay Per Use Model for all options (Suggestion - Toilets near slums can have a monthly card at a nominal price with limited No of uses was rejected due to perceived misuse).

The charge should be Rs. 1.00 for urinals and Rs. 2.00 for Lavotories These will be near beaches, bus stations, railway stations, crowded public places like hospitals, temples, Theatre clusters etc.

The above will have sponsors - Corporates, Banks etc who can utilise this op as a CSR. (Tax Benefits to be worked out). They can advertise on top of these structures (Size of Advt restricted).

All the toilets will have overhead plastic tanks which will be supplied the recycled water from STPs.

There will be a Watchman / woman who will be in charge and who will collect the fees. There will be an additional person to be recruited from only those who work as temp cleaning staff under corporation, will do the periodic cleaning of the place.

Flushes with timers / automatic flushing systems are being considered.

There is a suggestion for Premium Segment - Rs. 5.00 for urinals & Rs. 10.00 for Lavs. (Premium Category means good interiors with best possible maintenance).

Another suggestion is for mobile toilets on trailers which can be hauled by a tractor, jeep or truck.

Your suggestions are also welcome.

Why can't Neel Metal (the company in-charge of garbage clearance) be entrusted with cleaning & maintenance?

The idea of premium segment is good and should be taken up.

Corporation should ban urinating in open and levy heavy penalties.

Most important thing is that our people should be educated to use the toilets in a hygenic way.

No use in Banning people (Everyone knows what happened to smoking in public place). Instead they should open more number of clean public toilets. Waterless urinals will be a good idea...

I hope they provision bidets. Papers are messy and wasteful. Whereas, the faucet and a 'sombu' are again prone to abuses.

The 'toilet' maintenance, ergonomics and the ethics must be taught at elementary level to kids. Its part of the public health engineering that we are eons behind as a society when compared to the advanced nations.

MAY NOT BE POSSIBLE, but just trying

I think such facilities should be free it it has to be successful. Somehow we have to recoup the cost through advertising. There will be a huge initial investment. But I think government can showcase our city with such facilities.

WATER
Use very less water or not at all for flushing. Use OIL based flush. Use water only for handwash and recyle that water to clean the floors once a day using automatic jet flush that turns on automatically at night.

DRY FLOORS
Use De-Humidifiers (possibly solar powered) to keep the floors dry all the time and exhaust fans. Add perforated floor mat possibly made of aluminium or some other rust proof material. The perforations should be like tiny squares raised from the floor at least an inch and the contact area with the feet should be very thin. i.e. the perforation walls should be very narrow (almost razor sharp ). This would prevent any spills that happen around the urinal from sticking to your feet. Prevent that wet feeling as well as the marks that follow you after you are done with your business.
(How to secure those floor mats is another question )

HYGENE
The handwash taps (open/shut) should be operated by foot via a pedal.
No doors to enter/exit and no touching anything. Of course have to touch something to do POOP but most of the people use these things for PEE . Infact we should build only PEE stalls first up. We can add POOP ones later and charge people for using it.

LESS STENCH
Timer operated air freshener, sponsored by Hindustan Lever

Neel Metal Fanalca is a Solid Waste Management company and not a Facility management company.

Different way of thinking - Good.

May be a little far fetched for the moment.

Waterless toilets are being considered, but the chemicals used there are not green and they pollute.

Ecosan toilets are also considered, but right now they are very costly. Have to be imported from South Africa. Local clones are lacking in quality. The sprinkling of ash is the key to control coliform and and the Stench.

Periodical Removal has to be done.

Most of the slum people dont even wear chappals in public toilets and water washing is part of our custom. Using Faucet / Bidet itself may scare away many of them.

We have to try at a few places at first and learn from the experience.

True, it may not be possible near slums. We can try in public places like Besant Nagar beach first. I always feel that the stench and wetness is a turnoff .

Government can throw a challenge at our premium institutions to build something similar to this
