Getting rid of human waste safely is always an issue and because of that, we have a myriad of rules and regulations that govern how sewage is removed, stored, leeched and dispersed.
In a SHTF scenario where you're stuck for a few days , however, a traditional sewage system may not be available.
If that is the case, one survival skill you must know is how to handle human waste and in a long-term, off grid situation, creating your own septic system is a potentially health saving activity you can do on your own.
One important note, this plan is for emergency use only, it is illegal except in an emergency and you would have to be creative with the materials in a truly SHTF moment.
On the next page, we will show you how to create your own two-person septic system.
