A Pledge to Put up River Toilets
Portable toilets, according to the Oklahoma Conservation Commission, are important in keeping the Illinois River clean and its water quality at its finest. Eight portable toilets have already been placed this summer and is said to be maintained by a private contractor. The maintenance of which costs almost $8,000.
The shortage on state funds have almost compromised and endangered the project to a limit and eventually, a stop. When this happened, members of the Save the Illinois River (STIR) started finding ways to raise funds. Since both the Illinois River and Lake Tenkiller are bound by thousands of visitors annually, STIR believed that providing additional portable toilets are essential.
Because of this humanely endeavor, Oklahoma Scenic Rivers Commission considers STIR’s project as a great means of allowing installation of more portable toilets at various locations than before. Through the said project, recreationalists will be relieved to find out that there will be more portable toilets alongside the scenic place by next year.
