Here's a modest suggestion...how about handing out "irritation notices", much like the one you'll find on "youparklikeana**hole.com". Spoiler alert...after substituting the correct letters for the asterisks, this site may linguistically offend some.

We have used grey water on many occasions to drowned out our campfire at the end of an evening. Using grey water for this purpose makes more sense than using clean potable water
in my book. I am not draining my whole grey tank into the fire pit just enough grey water to extinguish the fire.

However you must consider that since you also drain your black tank out of the same hose the hose is still considered contaminated with fecal bacteria even after rinsing with grey water. So probably not the best thing for your fellow campers. Maybe just because I am a nurse and think in terms of clean vs unclean!

Many camp grounds are very tight so we all have to be good neighbors what might be ok in an isolated area is not ok when people are tightly packed into an area. I hate having to tie my dog up but do it out of respect for those who don't like dogs lose and out of respect for the camp ground rules.

We don't use the hose . We wash our dishes (After scraping) in plastic tubs and save the water in a 5 gallon pail for use on the fire. Our method is far more sanitary than the method we used when I was a Boy Scout many years ago.

I doubt the grey water dumper in this case used his hose.

Don't feel too much better yet Nurse Ratchet, there's a lot of fecal matter in the forest.
