This survey assessed the status of public infrastructure facilities in Tamil Nadu. This survey has covered 10 districts, 489 school toilets, 519 public toilets and 57 solid waste infrastructures. Solid waste management practices of 11 municipalities have been covered. The conditions of the villages and towns need immediate attention as there is no proper system currently in place for waste disposal. In some of the studies, separate urinals for boys are not available and some were not being used because of damage or not having proper water connections. Some of the other public facilities didn’t have proper utilities for hygiene, such as soap.
The report covered many topics such as the distance of toilets from communities, condition of septic tanks of public toilets and water sources for toilets and water for washing hands. Surveys and graphs were created comparing the 11 municipalities. Every month, 7500 tons of waste is being managed by the selected local body.
