Another Stench from Albany

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is causing a literal stink by promoting eco-friendly waterless urinals.

DEC has been getting complaints by state workers that waterless urinals at their building have created a fetid mess complete with "splash back," "puddles (of urine) on the floor," and "unpleasant odor."

Apparently, the use of waterless urinals are needed when qualifying a building as LEED, a designation by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Typical to most government entities, the NYSDEC is cumbersome and inefficient. This could be an issue for years.
