All Green (And Yellow, Too!!!)

Another AlGore experiment turns to.....ahhh........

Students at a high school in Boca Raton, Florida, must step over rivers of urine and endure the stench of rancid waste after a plan to bring ‘green’ waterless urinals into bathrooms backfired.

School officials at Spanish River High School thought they had found an environmentally-friendly, cost-saving solution for their bathrooms when they installed Falcon Waterfree urinals in their boys bathrooms.

But with no water moving through the school’s copper pipes to flush the urine into the sewer system, the waste produced noxious gases that ate through the metal, leaving leaky pipes that allowed urine to drip into walls and flow onto floors.  --PowerLine quoting South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Water, water, everywhere, and not a drop to drink.

Is this a Green Godess Ritual?
Stepping over Rivers of Urine?

They should have followed the MMSD system. You don't have to actually treat the sewage so long as you "blend" it with naturally occurring water supplies.
