Shit Flow Diagram (SFD), Bijnor

A Sanitation (or Shit) Flow Diagram presents a clear picture of how excreta flows are managed within the city. The diagram clearly depicts how excreta flows from user interface to the final disposal. It has the following stages:

➣ The city has 100% coverage of sewer network which has been completed recently but it is not functional yet, as the Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) is still in construction phase, scheduled to be completed only by 2018.
