Abstract:

Military forces are frequently called upon to accomplish missions that involve temporary housing of military and civilian personnel for varying periods of time. This paper addresses the sanitary aspects of providing proper living conditions for military troops, temporarily displaced civilians and refugees. The primary focus is on the collection, storage, removal and treatment of human waste, and provisions for water and power supply to support these systems.
