Developing Codes: Reach Code for Site-built Composting Toilets in Oregon

Recode successfully legalized site-built (i.e. built custom to the location or nonproprietary) composting toilets & non-NSF certified composting toilets through the Reach Code in 2011.  The Reach Code Amendment submitted by Recode, includes performance testing standards requiring a moisture test (<75% moisture) and fecal coliform test (<200 fecal coliforms/gram) after the first batch of treatment is complete, the same tests required by NSF certification.
