I saw this image on CNN . com and was curious what the real story could be (assuming the picture is real).


It would appear someone took the NEC requirement for a receptacle in a bathroom to an extreme laugh

The meter is on a separate structure from the porta-potty. I don't know, but maybe this is just the storage area for United Site Services? A search on that phone number turned up this site: http://www.unitedsiteservices.com/markets/northern-california.html

In addition to porta-potties, they also provide temporary power, including hookups to the local POCO ... which would require meters, of course!

Well, that would be one way to save space on the jobsite, Consolidate your temp service and facilities in one unit! Hey, even put a ventilation fan in there wink

OK, just to play devils' advocate .... many of those porta-potties have sinks in them. Why should the receptacle requirement NOT apply? After all, many of them sit in the same place for years on end.....

Are you talking about the porta jon or the ones who usually uses them all the time?

I am assuming that out of the frame there is a huge concrete block anchoring that blue steel thing in place... or.. maybe not?
