The SCAT machine at the Newland Ranch Human Waste Disposal Site is not functioning. A hopper has been set up to allow users to hand wash their toilets. Please see the pictures of the set up at Newland and how to use the hopper. The Forest is currently working on getting the SCAT machine running.

Thanks for the update. I don’t know but I’m not smiling like the lady in that photo during the cleaning process.

Wag Bags or similar come to mind. More of a hassle to use at camps than a regular groover, but not having to worry about whether or not the SCAT machine is working at the end of a trip - well worth it.

We were the group that was using it when it broke. Damn thing ate our groover in the process thanks to the locking doors.

And before anyone asks, we had nothing in our tank except human waste and TP 🙂

Montana goes to our next stage of re-opening on June one as well, I am simply going to avoid the stink-eye on both sides of the border and stay in Montana until then.

Scat machine up and running at Newland ranch this year?
Update May 13th includes this:

The SCAT machine at Newland Ranch is closed, but the waste station will have the hopper available, as well as a hose and water for rinsing porta-potties, and dumpsters for garbage.
