A Lake Charles, Louisiana, portable restroom tech was recently arrested in connection with two instances of illegal sewage waste discharge. The tech is accused of discharging portable restroom waste into a roadside ditch near Sulphur. The investigation was conducted by the Calcasieu County Sheriff’s Office and the Criminal Investigations Section of the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality.

The technician was photographed at the scene by eyewitnesses discharging a slurry consistent with portable restroom tank waste from his vacuum truck. The investigation was launched after the eyewitnesses contacted authorities.

Portable Sanitation Aids Earthquake-Stricken California Town

The July 4 and 5 earthquakes in California’s Searles Valley, magnitudes 6.4 and 7.1 respectively, left many residents without water, natural gas and electric. According to CBS KCAL-TV 9, the unincorporated town of Trona — home to about 2,000 — was particularly affected with 80% of the town without water. 

While electricity and natural gas was restored to the town by the following Monday, residents remained without water for a week. Portable restrooms and portable shower units were brought in, and the National Guard distributed drinking water to residents and livestock alike.
