In the modern town of Harappa, a covered drain built along the outside of a house takes sewage water from a second storey latrine and bathroom to the street level drain without splashing people passing by on the street.

This courtyard of a modern house in Harappa town, has an upper level in front of the house that is plastered and has a small entryway that can be blocked to keep out animals. Drinking water is kept in earthenware pots on a wooden stand.
The bathing areas and walled latrine are located on the interior edge of the courtyard that touches the street. The drain from the bathinga area runs through the wall and falls directly into the street drain.
