(b) A mixture of one quart of gasoline to five quarts of diesel oil is
effective; nevertheless, it should be used with caution.
(c)  Personnel should be encouraged to urinate in a urine disposal
facility rather than in the burn-out latrine, as more fuel is required to burn-out one with
the liquid content.
(d) If contents are not rendered dry and odorless in one burning, they

6-13. BORED-HOLE LATRINE
This type of latrine consists of a hole, about 18 inches in diameter and from 15 to
20 feet deep, covered by a one-hole latrine box (figure 6-9). The actual diameter is not

Figure 6-9. Bored-hole latrine.
a. A covered metal drum may be sunk into the ground for use as a box. Both
ends of the drum are removed and a fly-proof seat cover with a self-closing lid is made
to fit the top of the drum. If a drum is not available, a fly-proof wooden box, 18 inches
high, may be constructed instead.
