[greenyes] greener houseboats
Many houseboat communities that are mostly stationary have sewer lines. They 
can also have pumpout tanks and composting toilets and graywater systems. 

For low-resource houseboat communities, solid waste and solids from 
composting toilets can be collected and managed on shore. Urine can be 
collected or used for plant nutrients (I've often thought of the possibility 
of a barge that holds a "leachfield" or ecological wastewater system. 
Graywater can be discharged to the water (not the best solution but very 
common) or used for plant irrigation on shore on on small planters around the 
boats.
