Eco-Community Propane Policy
We are an eco-tourist community so we try to use as little propane as possible.
However, sometimes it's necessary to turn on the propane for the Solar Shower! We have these policies to ensure the gas is not overused.
When turning on the propane make sure visitors don't see how we're doing it. A lot of people try to look because they want to be to do turn the gas on themselves. For safety and security, we do not allow guests to do this. Instead, interns will simply ask guests to go turn on the water in the shower and then say if it is hot.
