Summary
An urgent environmental problem of our times is the disposal of human waste. The relationship between drinking water and waste effluents, disease and contaminants, is explained clearly in this challenging program. After showing a brief history of the Victorian sewage system, Human Waste stresses that now "prevention is more economical than treatment." One preventive solution is the waterless composting toilet, championed by Abby Rockefeller. Waste is transformed by bacterial action into an odorless, germ-free fertilizer. Other visionary alternatives to traditional waste management are shown, such as using plants and trees to remove toxic metals from water
