 I lived on Turk for a short when it was disintegrating, but this takes the cake.

San Francisco is taking a new data-driven approach to a longtime city problem: human excrement.

For decades, feces on streets and sidewalks has been one of the biggest quality-of-life issues for San Francisco residents and visitors, particularly in the hard-edged Tenderloin, home base for many of the city's homeless and the nonprofits that provide them clothes, addiction help and meals.

Now, after a chorus of complaints and a month spent mapping the highest concentrations of human excrement in the Tenderloin, the Department of Public Works on Tuesday will roll out the city's latest approach: mobile bathroom stations at the three most well-used areas.

Each station will include two specially outfitted portable toilets, a sink, a needle disposal bin and a dog waste station, all mounted on a flatbed trailer.

“We're championing our residents' right to clean streets and a safe place to do their business with dignity,” said Supervisor Jane Kim, who represents the area and has been pursuing a public toilet program since fall of 2012.
