Abstract: The United States Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (USA-CERL) has had an ongoing research program addressing remote site waste treatment technologies. The potential for exposure of latrine users and maintenance personnel to pathogenic bacteria and other organisms in aerosols and liquid and solid wastes of four existing types of remote site latrines in close spatial proximity was investigated. The four latrines studied included: composting latrines, a standard vault latrine, a chemical latrine, and an aerated vault latrine.
