A comprehensive, user-friendly guide to environmentally responsible methods for reclaiming and recycling greywater and nutrient-rich human waste. The Scoop on Poop presents a wide range of ways to answer the call of nature, and in so doing maximize the benefits of "waste water." Whether you're interested in composting toilets, grey- or blackwater planters, constructed wetlands, or other innovative solutions, author Dan Chiras will walk you through system pros and cons; design, construction, and maintenance advice; and costs, permitting issues, and the safe treatment of composted waste. All system plans are relatively simple and straightforward - enough so that the average homeowner can build and install them. Intended for readers who live in cities, towns, and rural environments, this is a practical guide to safe, ingenious ways to capture the nutrients from waste and recycle them back into your soil to grow fruit trees, vegetable, and flowers - all without running afoul of the "ick" factor.--COVER.
