GOVERNMENT CAMP, ORE. -- The Oregon State Marine Board has approved a grant to purchase and install a floating restroom on Timothy Lake in the Mt. Hood National Forest.

The floating restroom, trailer and anchoring system is expected to cost $131,000. Of that final fee, $1,000 will be covered by in-kind contributions, $32,500 will come from Portland General Electric and $97,500 from the federal grant through the Clean Vessel Act.

PGE will also maintain the unit under agreement with Clackamas County and the Forest Service will allow the restroom on national forest property.

The Oregon State Marine Board is funded entirely by user fees, and the revenue generated from the fees goes back to boaters in the form of boating facility improvements, law enforcement services, and education and outreach.
