Hmmm, just about every dump station I've ever seen violated at least one of those rules. None of them are above grade. Few if any have any type of seal on the brass cap. Must be something about being a temporary facility.

Most of the hook-up sewer connections meet those rules, or at least close to it. But not dump stations.

A week or two ago, I had a campsite where the dump site (at the campsite, not a dump station) was not only above grade, it was above my tank. I didn't notice that until after pulling the handle. To dump the tank, I had to let the hose fill, then lift it and walk it to the dump site, repeat ad nauseum.

I have read that buses typically pull over a grate and let it rip. Seems like that dump station may be to accommodate Greyhounds and charter buses.

That's how it was at the bus station in my home town... bus pulled in to it's parking space and dumped while loading/unloading passengers.

Remember the incident a few years ago when a bus dumped its tanks on a grate of a bridge over the Chicago sewer,I mean river?
