Getting back to common sense, if you have ever been in a congested campground and smelled the odor from a large number of thoughtless people dripping their tanks, you may wish you could pass some laws too!
Yep, apparently so . We have regulations because plenty of people don't have any sense.

What burns me up more is the recent increase of idiots that burn their garbage in the fire pits !!

There is an old Scuba Divers Creed. "Take only pictures, kill only time, leave only bubbles" That being said... Leave your campsite as good or better than when you arrived.

Completely read the OP's post wrong. I thought he meant, can he let the grey tank drain throughout his stay (into the sewer) or should he let the grey fill (like a black tank) then dump.

The Leave No Trace camping movement has a similar credo.

I try to live by that as much as possible. Both in camping and everyday life.

Me too except I failed on my recent trip to Copake as I left my water hose "Y" valve on the spigot!. I made a promise to myself to do better next time though...

Maybe I missed it. But the way I read the original post is he wants to know if he can simply leave the grey water valve open while connected to the cg sewer hookup.

Not to let it drain on the ground. That would certainly be a big NO. I leave the grey water open while connected to the sewer in the campsite. No difference I can see between letting the sink and shower drain as you use them or letting the tank fill then dumping 50 gallons at once.

+1

Exactly what I said. We just need the original poster to confirm! LOL

In a big camp ground with full hook up there is a constant flow of grey and black water into the sewer system. I just don't see why it would be frowned upon to allow the grey water to trickle in as you use it versus allowing the tank to fill then dumping.

If the campground rules say you can release your grey and black water into the onsite sewer connection then I can't see any reason why they would rather 50 gallons at a time versus a little trickle as you use it.

I was just at Disney Fort Wilderness which I would consider a big campground and probably the best in the state of Florida if not the country. I rode my bike around and I look at everyone's campers and most if not all had their grey water valve in the open position. There was no smell that I could detect. Now....when I dumped my black tank of course the vent on my sewer connection released some odor. But there is no lingering odor from grey water trickling into the sewer.

My suspicion is, the OP meant what every one else here said no to. LOL
