But if you used a properly-functioning composting toilet, you wouldn't be polluting the lake.  You also wouldn't be contaminating potable water with feces.  I don't understand why these laws can't be loosened for those of us who actually know what we're doing and care about the environment.  You know what's happening to the Hood Canal here in Washington?  Big dead zones that are likely caused by things like leaky (but legal and presumably correctly-installed) septic systems along the shoreline.  It's extremely frustrating to see the "right" and "legal" choice doing so much damage when I know a better way.

Sorry, deeply personal tangent.  Wink

I absolutely agree, but if they allow me to install a composting toilet, then the neighbor who doesn't know what he's doing is going to, and he's going to cause a problem.  Or someone will be up in arms because they have to "spend all that money on a septic system", not realizing that a professionally designed composting toilet really isn't that big of a savings, it just doesn't use water and there's more personal responsibility to keep it operating right. 

When we can afford real country, without the issues of the lake association, we'll probably go with a composting toilet, because they do make more sense in many cases.
