Lake Billy Chinook getting new floating restrooms


New floating restrooms for Lake Billy Chinook are one of the projects approved by the Oregon State Marine Board recently.

The board approved several grants for boating access facility improvements in the Eastern region of the state at their last quarterly Board meeting, held on June 23 , in Salem.

The agency received 34 applications for Round 1 Grants that identified
$11 million in project needs with $6.2 million requested from the Marine Board. The Board awarded $2,404,966 in state funds and $1,951,296 in federal funds for the 2015-2017 boating facility improvement projects.

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) will replace two of Lake Billy Chinook’s existing floating restrooms which are both over 10 years old.

The older units will be replaced with state-of-the-art flush restrooms that are designed to reduce maintenance costs and improve efficiency.

The new restrooms will be installed in the spring of 2016. The older floating restrooms will be retro-fitted and relocated to other waterbodies in Oregon.
