LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (AP) - Heads ahoy! Floating toilets have returned to Lake Elsinore.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise says two solar-powered johns were launched at the Southern California resort this week. They replace two decade-old toilets removed last season.
The toilets, which resemble wooden cabins, could help boaters avoid a long journey back to shore. They're near the southwest shore of the lake where public restrooms are sparse.
Each has two stalls and uses lake water to flush. A double-hulled holding tank prevents anything from, ahhh, muddying the waters. The toilets will be periodically towed back and pumped out on shore.
State and federal funds paid for the toilets, which cost $65,000 each and should last a decade.
Several other California lakes also have floating restrooms.
