Description

Maine Huts & Trails is a non-profit organization that manages a system of four backcountry eco-lodges and more than 80 miles of trails in Western Maine. This poster will draw information upon the waste system at Flagstaff Lake Lodge, one of the four eco-lodges. The composting toilet system here was manufactured by Clivus New England. Key components of the system include toilets that flush with a 3 oz water/foam mixture, waterless urinals, and a central composting camber in the basement of the hut. We will present the way the system functions as well as its pros and cons in helping to reduce the operating cost and increasing sustainability at the hut.
