Camping By the River - LNT Toilet
Posted 20 April 2017 - 10:18 AM
We start the trip with a bag in one bucket and in the bottom of the bag is about 2 inches of material. The second bucket just has material in it and after each use the person just throws a scoop of material onto their waste this really keeps the smell down as well.
BTW I learned this by researching composting toilets for off grid use as well as getting info from horse stable owners.

When in doubt, ask the local land manager how they would like you to dispose of waste.
You stole my thunder! When in doubt, ask "The Man". (or The "Lady"--no Chauvinism intended.)

Yes, but as noted above, one should not really be camping in a flood plain. And lets face it, if the reasoning for camping in the flood plain is that "It only ever gets so high" then the reasoning for not urinating in the flood plain is gone. If the water only gets so high except on really, really rare occasions, then urine will make its way through the system before any "flood" can cause it to be intermingled with fresh water.
Feces is another matter. Kitty litter being the best option.
Depends on the local conditions, in terms of the flood plain. Watch the weather, and it's not a problem, at least in the Southeast. I wouldn't make those recommendations for the Southwest.
