Abstract: The waterless toilet manufactured by Shasta Manufacturing, Inc., of Redding, California, was evaluated for possible use at remote military training sites and guard stations. A telephone survey of six recreational areas indicated that park personnel were generally pleased with the performance of these units. On-site visits did not encounter offensive odors. Proper ventilation and liquid level control were found to be key factors in successful operation. A rational approach to sizing these units was developed on the basis of local pan evaporation rates.
