Abstract

Costs of systems that would provide different levels of water and sanitation services for a Brazilian community were analyzed by using local cost data and computer techniques. At all levels of service, the cost of supplying both water and sanitation is approximately twice that of providing water alone. Of the five systems investigated, one in particular appears to be economically feasible and attractive for many communities throughout the world.
