The “Oregon Trail Trailhead” at the Highway 21 Bridge near Diversion Dam will soon be the site of a $317,000 imported people poop RV dump facility–thanks to a grant to Ada County from the Idaho Parks Department.
The site already has an $80,000 interpretive sign donated 12 years ago by the J.R. Simplot Company. Soon the RV sanitary waste disposal will be constructed to capture what the motor home crowd took to the hills and brought back in a different form. It is intended to serve the recreational corridor from Stanley to Boise that apparently has no facility to off load toilet tanks.
The grant is to also cover rest rooms for domestic deposits and a “day use” area. Today’s covered wagons are much faster than the original models, but when it comes to the occupants, it’s all the same in the end.
