Another what would you do? Grey water neighbor.

Spending a couple weeks at the beach. Basically it's blacktop with partial hookups and no sewer. I stay here often and always bring a blue boy 'cause hooking up to dump is a pain. Along comes my new neighbor and 24hrs later water coming from his rig. First I think, leaking fresh water connection. Big waste of water but it happens. Closer inspection, since I'm out filling my blue boy, and I notice it's his sewer pipe. Cap sitting on top of the pipe steady trickle of water coming out of the pipe and he's nowhere to be found. I know this is fairly standard practice in the desert with the toy hauler crowd (guess what rig he has) but not in a defined RV park.

What do you?
A. Suck it up and mind your own business?
B. Wait for him to come back and ask what the heck are you doing?
C. Wander down to the park rangers and report his lazy, filthy, inconsiderate self?

Well, how you handle it depends on "just how big of an ole boy is he?"

Seriously, I would probably let the Ranger know. You hate to think the next user of his site will be parked on top of the guys waste.

Well, if he has the cap off and it's draining then it's likely the drainage is intentional. The ranger will investigate and take the appropriate action. That's what they get paid for.

Where we are right now our neighbor was doing the same thing. My first stop was the Rangers office.....Problem solved. They advised him to stop it immediately or leave!

Saw this happen at a local corps of engineers park. The guy actually ran his sewer hose downhill in plain view! Contacted the management and the nut was out of there within 30 minutes.

Would like to know why portable showers and dishes washed outside are ok.

Dishwater drains are usually provided in state parks that do not have full hookups. In a Georgia state park recently, we ran some gray water into the blue tank to go into the drain. Campground host stopped by to confirm that we were draining gray water only. Guess that means at least one misguided camper in the past had tried to drain more than gray water. Yuk!

I would be inclined to put his cap back on and then get the ranger. Let him deal with the full pipe of grey water.
