Achieving open defecation free (ODF) in Indonesia by 2019 is closely monitored by the Government of Indonesia (GoI) as it is targeted in the RPJMN (national mid-year term). This achievement is also targeted at Surabaya City as the second largest city in Indonesia. There are still 15.527 houses in Surabaya which do not have proper sanitation system or still practicing open defecation. This study is aimed to assess how ODF would be achieved in Surabaya by 2019; including what type of toilets are to be used. A household survey was conducted to locate and assess the condition of those houses. Survey results show that 12.772 houses still practice defecation in the open area. These houses comprise of legal and illegal houses which are 5.586 and 7.186, respectively.
