FanningandCate <FanningandCate [at] VALLEY.NET> is the author of the message below. It was posted by Fred, the Cohousing-L list manager <fholson [at] cohousing.org> -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- Here at Cobb Hill Cohousing in Hartland, VT http://www.cobbhill.org/ (where there is a unit for sale) we have composting toilets and therefore, a much smaller-than-normal leach field. Our community was built to explore ways to live more sustainably and the composting toilets have worked out very well: they do not smell, the system requires minimal maintenance, and we use about 1/3 the water a community our size would use with regular toilets. The selection of composting toilets was a deliberate choice to reduce our environmental footprint, even though there is (for now) plenty of water in the northeast. Here is the website of our Phoenix toilets: http://www.compostingtoilet.com/ You will need to work with your state with regard to the leach field requirements.

Unlike urban areas, our water will come from wells, and septic systems will handle sewage. This seems to be an unusual model for cohousing. Have any of you created cohousing in a rural area with these kinds of systems? --- end of quote ---
