English term or phrase: cement lined or long drop toilets
Okay, everybody can laugh...but I am not an expert in toilets. The sentence is:
"Using chemical toilets will kill them, cement lined or long drop toilets at camping sites is Ok". They are talking about a possible hookworm contamination.

Thank you in advance for any help!
