Ensuring quality emptying and transport service in the camps is a challenging task. At the beginning of an emergency, latrines are constructed in order to meet the demand of the population without much regard to emptying. Eventually the pits start to fill up due to high number of users. It is crucial to ensure the minimum requirements are met while employing a service provider for the emptying and transportation of the fecal sludge from the pits. If any competent service provider is not available, the authority must set up the service ensuring the minimum requirement.

Through this lesson, you will learn how to make sure the emptying and transport services being provided to camps meet or exceed the minimum requirements.
