Non Self-Contained rigs on BLM Long Term Visitor Area

What's the deal for those of us that don't have the requisite 10 gallon fixed holding tank? Who here has boondocked in a 13 ft trailer? Did I see something about some areas allowing it providing your within 500 ft of a toilet?
Anybody here have experience with this?
Thanks in advance.

Hmmmm... Do you have a reference for this requirement.
Many CA State Beaches require "Self Containment" but accept an external holding tank connected with a closed connection and a porta-potty.

The long term visitor areas require non self-contained units to be within 500 ft of facilities, but I haven't seen it as a general requirement. That doesn't mean there isn't one in other areas though.

What is BLM? I am sure I was told before, but forget what the acronym stands for.

The State of Oregon can be pretty restrictive about dumping gray/black water tanks. I'm a tree hugger! Just make Google your best friend if you are traveling.


And PLEASE pay attention to the state you're traveling through. Each can be different, pay attention... you ARE a steward of the environment.

Dump your holding tanks only at dump stations...Donna D. is right on this one!

Buy a portable holding tank (available at Camping World). Easy solution.
Take the portable tank to a dump station when full. DO NOT POLUTE !!

On our BLM (Bennett Land Management) property only grey water is allowed to be randomly dispersed, and over the years has provided a lot of watering for surrounding vegetation.

At a campground, only the dump stations get used, even for grey water.

That's not true everywhere. In some places grey water dumping on site is encouraged. I ran into that in an Ohio state park where they had a movable metal dump ring at each site, and I've seen others report that in some Western states.

This seems to summarize those locations that have a self containment requirement.

Bureau of Land Management – Long Term Visitor Areas – Supplementary Rules
17.
Self-Contained Vehicles

a. In Pilot Knob, Midland, Tamarisk, and Hot Springs LTVAs, you may camp only in self-contained camping units. The
La Posa, Imperial Dam, and Mule Mountain LTVAs are restricted to self-contained camping units, except within 500 feet
of a vault or rest room.
b. Self-contained camping units must have a permanent, affixed waste water holding tank of 10-gallon minimum capacity.
BLM does not consider port-a-potty systems, systems that utilize portable holding tanks, or permanent holding tanks of
less than 10-gallon capacity, to be self-contained
