I currently have a well, have a main septic, and a separate grey water dry well.

However, for those who are on sewer, all your drains lead to the sewer, not just the toilet...

So without sewer, you don't have a drain. You would have to find a way to re route your waster water, and dig a latrine, or make a outhouse. A "portapotty" may be a viable option if they haven't all been bought up by then.

Oh, and make sure to tape the toilets shut inside... it could get pretty stinky if someone forgets they can't flush...

i'm pretty sure this would be consider a "SHTF" moment for females in the area.

Outhouses are not uncommon around here.
