Days Out Ontario
Washow EcoLodge is a community economic development project of the Moose Cree First Nation. Completed in 2010, this 12-bedroom wilderness lodge is at the mouth of the Harricanaw River at James Bay. Located off grid, it includes a main lodge (including full-service kitchen), a staff cabin, and a 3-kW on-site PV system.

Potable water is supplied from a local creek, which is treated with an ultra-filtration system consisting of a pump, an internal freeze protection heat wire, a pressure tank, aluminum sulfate dosing, a settling tank, pre-filters, and a membrane water purifier. Wastewater is treated by waterless, composting toilets. Grey water from showers and sinks is drained to a 2,000 gallon septic tank and then treated by a Waterloo Biofiltration system.
