The new backcountry composting toilet at Warp Bay is now ready for use by campers at Warp Bay or by hikers on the Coastal Trail. This new composting toilet will break down human waste into fertilizer. Park management staff are experimenting with this composting toilet, and if it does the job, then it will reduce the need for park staff to keep moving the traditional P3 toilets when the holes become full.
The composting toilet at Warp Bay is made by Clivus Multrum:
The toilet was purchased by the Friends of Lake Superior Park. The toilet kit was too big for park staff to carry to the remote Warp Bay camping area, so it was moved to the site by helicopter.
The composting toilet is open for use but there is still some finishing work to be done. A solar panel will be placed on the roof and it will power a ventilation fan. A waterless hand washing dispenser also needs to be installed.
