BLM Land Imperial Dam - water, sewage question

When on BLM land how much support do campers have? I want to camp in the Imperial Dam area in the next winter or two. Just wandering if there are sewage trucks that come around as well as water trucks with potable water.

How much does it cost?

Imperial Dam Is a LTVA area so facilities are generally available. Google LTVA, and you can find what each LTVA area has, and any area specific rules for said area.

I know of no non LTVA, BLM land that have water and/or sewage trucks that service RV's, other than Quartzite, and thats because there is the world's largest convergence of RV's know to man so there are people there trying to make a buck.

Stayed there a year ago, they have water and dump but you have to either pull/drive to that area or use other means to haul your own, no trucks that come to you.

Thanks - it was Quartzite that I heard trucks support the campers as a business. Seems gray water will be my biggest issue. I have a sewage tote that connects to my truck ball that I use in state parks. But in a state park I am only towing the tote at a slow speed for a few hundred yards at worse.

On BLM land I might be a few miles from the dump sration.

What do other people do? How do they handle gray and black water?

I have seen it all, from tanks mounted on trailers, trucks, etc, to people just picking up and going to the dump station for a dump and refill. We could go for 14 days so it was not a big problem to pick up and go dump and refill.

There are some at Imperial Dam that will dump your tanks and fill your water, but they are also campers. I don't think there are any commercial services. Most people use the totes. You actually don't have to pull them that far, maybe two miles or less depending on where you park. They have 4 lanes of a very nice dump station. Some people have made tilting carriers that fit into the 2" receiver hitch for carrying and dumping the tote.

Also, replacing the totes wheels/tires with wider, inflatable tires makes using them easier. All thats needed is to buy a longer axle (a five eights rod as I remember) and some new wheels with a five eights hole, and your set.

Personally, Ive upgraded to a 55 gallon barrel.
