Sources of Stress
Sanitation is a polite way of talking about keeping human waste (sewage) out of the water that is used for drinking and all sorts of domestic and industrial purposes. Keeping water safe for all these uses has been a very big factor in improving health and enabling people to live longer.
Time and time again, throughout history, big cities would suffer huge epidemics with people dying from a variety of 'plagues'. Eventually it was discovered that many of these plagues were caused by polluted water.
The Thames river was the main source of drinking water for London until the 19th century and it was also the main sewer for all the waste of the city. When it was realized that this polluted water was one of the main reasons that Londoners were suffering from cholera, a massive storm water sewer system was puit in place to stop all the detritus from the city getting washed into the Thames every time it rained (which in England was most every day!).

The New York Sanitation Department is responsible for solid waste, not sewage. Nevertheless the removal of solid waste is important for environmental health. When solid waste accumulates and starts to rot, it attracts all sorts of vermin that also serve as carriers of disease. Rats and mice are problems in most cities, and the problem is aggravated when solid waste accumulates.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
