Panel Keeps Ban on Flush-Free Urinals

IN BRIEF Los Angeles County / LOS ANGELES

November 24, 2005|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A panel that is helping revise the Uniform Plumbing Code announced Wednesday that it would continue banning the use of water-saving, flush-free urinals in public restrooms.

The decision by the International Assn. of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials follows a hearing last week in Ontario at which plumbers' unions condemned the fixtures as unsanitary.

Conservationists had sought the urinals as a way of saving up to 24,000 gallons of water per urinal each year.
