And Now for Something Completely Different

Greg McClay recently posted at LISNews on an interesting new trend in library construction: waterless urinals. Apparently, they are in use at the Seattle Public Library, and in the words of at least one writer, "reek". Greg then asks the question:

I guess you'd have to use one to make up your own mind about odor but if you pay a water bill there is a significant advantage.

Anyway, we do in fact use waterless urinals here at Ft. Huachuca, and they seem to work just fine. There haven't been any issues, and they are a good way to save water. Here in the middle of the desert, that's obviously an important factor.

" And the odor?"

That was covered under the whole "there haven't been any issues" line.

No problem, sorry for the ambiguity.

I understand unions have protested these, so pipes have had to be installed anyway. Maybe if the stink starts, someone can poke a hole in the wall?
