On the average it takes 8 months from socialization at the provin- cial level till completion of construction. The time required for preparation of san- itation service management team is not known yet because the process is just beginning in January 2004. The learning process obtained from this project is the technology applied at the community level cannot be made uni- form. The choice of sanitation technolo- gy is based on the community perception and the local culture. Take for instance the city of Pasuruan, its community rejects communal toilet because it is considered as a dirty place and cannot be built before the public eyes. The community actually needs sa- nitation but they do not know what a hygienic sanitation looks like.
