Another Green Dream Down The Drain: Calif. agency gives waterless urinals the flush

When I say they want us to live like the third world, it is unfortunately never hyperbole. Fortunately they have failed to convince Americans in general that we need to go back to our less sanitary roots.

According to California Environmental Protection Agency spokeswoman Lindsay VanLaningham, the agency has removed all 56 waterless urinals at its 25-story headquarters in downtown Sacramento.

The building was touted by the state as the greenest high-rise in the nation when it opened in 2001.

But VanLaningham says CalEPA has received hundreds of complaints over the years about foul odors and wet floors. Maintenance costs also grew high.

The urinals were estimated to save 1 million gallons of water a year.

They have been replaced with new urinals that use just a half-gallon of water per flush.

Will they ever learn?
