Dog poop has bright side: Powering Mass. park lamp

Mass. (AP) — It stinks and it's a hazard to walkers everywhere, but it turns out dog poop has a bright side.
poop is lighting a lantern at a Cambridge dog park as part of a monthslong project that its creator, artist Matthew Mazzotta,
hopes will get people thinking about not wasting waste.
"Park Spark" poop converter is actually two steel, 500-gallon oil tanks painted a golden yellow, connected by diagonal black
piping and attached to an old gaslight-style street lantern at the Pacific Street Park.
the dogs do their business, signs on the tanks instruct owners to use biodegradable bags supplied on site to pick up the poop
and deposit it into the left tank. People then turn a wheel to stir its insides, which contain waste and water. Microbes in
the waste give off methane, an odorless gas that is fed through the tanks to the lamp and burned off. The park is small but
has proven busy enough to ensure a steady supply.

along the Atlantic ocean in Flagler county Florida
Volusia county is definitely pet friendly.
of the pets have a leash on and enjoy getting along
other pets and the ocean, the pet owners that we
were very friendly and seemed to enjoy Breanna's first
with the Atlantic ocean far more than she did!
get me wrong I believe that Volusia has at least one beach
if you wish to have your pet see the ocean just
them the money"!
of the rest of the ocean is blocked by cement buildings!
We took Breanna to Flagler county on the east shore,
the west side of Florida is the oil problem!
As you can see Breanna's first encounter
with the Atlantic ocean did not go as planned,
she wanted nothing to do with the water chasing her!
Motels near A1A Flagler beach Florida?
two worth reading about!
One really pet friendly!
Si Como No
Sure Why Not
|We have stayed in this motel twice.
|We enjoyed this stay and give it 5 stars.
We all know that almost all Red Roof Inns
and all Motel 6's
allow pets however, there are many more motels that are starting
to get the message that they were losing a lot of
great customers because of a bad rule.
" No Pets Allowed!
I could use your help in getting the word out
as to where these new friendly places are.
I also know that there are a number of
beaches and parks that now allow pets.
