Posted on 10/01/2013 9:45:09 AM PDT by george76
The Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently paid $98,670 for the purchase and installation of an outhouse at the Swede Park Trail Head in Alaska.
The purchase includes a single-vault Romtec 1011 "Aspen Single" prefabricated waterless toilet and its installation at the parking area for the trail head.
The Oregon based company Romtec lists the "Aspen Single" model on its website for as low as $9,999, but the BLM says the price they paid likely includes shipping to Alaska.
The $98,670 contract does not include the pumping out and maintenance of the facility. Those issues are addressed in a separate contract.

I am in the wrong business! I should be installing outhouses for $50,000.00 - $70,000 each!
$10,000 for the outhouse. $80,000 for the toilet seat.
Thats some expensive sh#! there man.
I once stopped in a roadside outhouse in Death Vally at some celebrated place in the very flat bottom....Pearl something? Blue something...I forget....
Anyway, a real salt, borax and other mineral flat that had pretty colors...they dug a hole 20-30 ft. deep and put a shack over it....you could only stay in there long enough to take whiz. Any longer and the chemicals and bodily issue would literally knock you out.
An Obama Office...
well they dont come cheap...
only the best will do..
In other news BLM has announced that trail use fees are going to increase this year due to rises in costs to maintain trails.
Go after them Sarah and tell em’ you don’t want to see that ‘waste’ from your back porch.
LOL! The old boy who built that to put out in front of his business in Tucumcari would have sold one like it to them a heck of a lot cheaper and thrown in the sign for free.
Government waste to catch body waste.
What else would you expect from our Nation’s CRAPITOL?
Now that’s a crapper for the ages— does it include bronze doors? For that kind of money, I expect a marble frieze showing us Emperor Obama smiting the Tea Party barbarians, etc.
Every time you wipe, you get a free photo of him.
I’m assuming that it’s a composting toilet similar to many in parks on the Rockies. Just another racket for making a particularly influential constituent really fat.
$100,000 for a single hole outhouse.
Wonder about another green / solar kickback ?
