Summary: “In most developing cities, wastewater services are largely decentralized. Improving wastewater services is therefore a matter of improving the sanitary characteristics of septic tanks, pit latrines, and small systems serving discrete housing developments. This is not really an issue for economic regulation, but rather a question for environmental regulation and policy. In many cases, the ideal long-term solution will be a centralized system, and the big policy challenge will be deciding how such a system can be paid for, installed, and managed”—(p. 80).
