Peeing on the ground causes toxic pollution of the water table. The ground water runs into the central Whitelake River and down the valley for miles around. Wildlife and fish are affected if 200,000 revellers pee everywhere.
The Environment Agency tests the water regularly, and has the power to close down the site if too many people have urinated and polluted the site.
We have over 1300 compost toilets across the site, which after a year turns into wonderful compost which is brought back onto the farm and used in the Permaculture area and Peace garden. A compost toilet is a water free system that is best for the environment.
There are thousands of toilets on site, and we urge you to use them. Environmental health students check the toilets twice a day and cleaners and other staff are on hand, 24/7, to help keep them functional.
