- this is a crappy subject but needs to be discussed. Many cottages
have added small (and not so small) chemical toilets. Of course they
need to be periodically emptied. We have started to see two problems
with the emptying of of the chem-johns into our bathrooms. First,
sometimes there is so much solid waste (I said this was a crappy
dumped in, that the toilet clogs when flushed. Second, when dumped
the waste sprays all over the toilet, floor, and walls causing a real
mess and rendering that stall unusable. So, please be courteous to
your fellow campers and empty slowly to avoid splashing and creating
a mess. Flush early and flush often to avoid nasty clogs. We are
exploring installing a trap door to dump waste directly into one of
our septic fields to provide a more direct route to empty waste.
However until that is finished, please follow those simple steps.
