A range of technologies for on-site wastewater management, for collection of wastewater, its treatment, reuse and disposal is available. A number of these will be highlighted: On-site wastewater management technologies (Pit latrine, Composting toilet, Pour flush toilet, Septic tank, Improved on-site treatment units), Collection of wastewater (Deep sewerage, Simplified sewerage. Settled sewerage), Wastewater treatment, Activated sludge, Trickling filtration, Lagoons, Land-based treatment, Constructed wetland, Anaerobic treatment), Wastewater reuse (Agriculture, Aquaculture, Industry) and Sludge treatment and reuse.

Systematic decision making tools for selection of technology are available ranging from a simple flowsheet to more complex computer programs. Scenarios for sound practices of technology will be used to illustrate a range of possible applications of technology that take into account environmental, economic and other factors.
