Name or title of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome:
Composting toilet

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

Oregon’s building code and administrative rules regulate the installation and use of composting toilets in residential areas. Currently, this code reference does not allow for commercial or multi-family installations. Following a lengthy yet successful code exception and installation process, Lewis & Clark installed its first composting toilet, and one of very few in our local area, on a commercial property. We will be working with Recode and other community partners to develop methods and standards for use of commercial composting toilets with the intent of promoting code change at the State level.
