October 20, 2014 - PERMANENT Toilet Placed at Brown Bridge Landing

 | Published on 10/25/2014
October 20, 2014 - PERMANENT Toilet  Placed at Brown Bridge Landing
The TAPC and the BRCS has been trying to get a permanent toilet at the
Brown Bridge Landing and Shumsky Landing for some time.
We knew the portable toilet solution was not sustainable but we felt that we had
to show that there was a need and we did that by using the temporary solution.
Today, with the help of the DNR and the GTCD, we were able to get the toilet placed
and put into operation at no cost to the BRCS or the TAPC.
Here is a link to the gallery of pictures we took today.
We wish to thank Ham Hobson of the DNR and Steve Largent of the GTCD
for their help and support for this project.
Improvements Were Made On November 6, 2014.
Tracie and I made a few improvements to the BBL toilet today.
Our thinking is that if we supply the ways and means to take care of the
toilet facility, people will take care of it.
We have been told that this will NOT work but we have hopes that it will.
Here are the photos of what we did today.
Sign with instructions for users.
If you are at the BBL and you see there is a problem take care of it.
If you can't take care of it contact Tracie or me.
