Gray Water Disposal
There continue to be stringent environmental laws enacted both at the State and County level which affect all San Diego County parks. The laws require parks to implement a stricter control of gray water disposal to avoid soil and underground water-source contamination. These laws require that the only water to touch the soil is rainwater, to the extent that this is feasible.
What that means for us is that we need to be extremely diligent about collecting water after doing dishes, washing, or disposing of liquids. It also means that we should not pour out beverages or other liquids directly onto the soil.
It is the responsibility of each camp or household to take care of collecting their gray water in a sealed container, and to avoid letting it spill or leak out onto the ground. Gray water may be disposed of at any of the stone privies, at the gray water dump near the Ranger Station, or at the collection tanks throughout the site. Please do not dump gray water into the porta-privies.
If you have any questions about gray water or gray water disposal, please see the staff at Basecamp or speak with one of the Park Rangers.
