1. Dear Asha, A soak pit under

Dear Asha,
 
A soak pit under such conditions is not possible. A raised latrine with a water tight septic tank should be considered. The septic tank should be emptied at frequent intervals.
 
Alternately they can go for a raised ECOSAN latrine which will involve least amount of wastewater disposal.
 
With a canal feeding into the plot! Drainage is a difficult issue. Consult a local civil engg. Some options are:

  1. Construct a bund and a gate at the canal side.
  2. Install a small pump to drain out the water regularly. 
  3. Explore a mini-windmill driven pump to save operating costs.
  4. Plant large water consuming plants. 

Best
