Does the institution use at least one waterless urinal?:

A brief description of the technology employed:

California State University Channel Islands (CI) has 64 urinals throughout the campus. Only 4 are not waterless. Each waterless urinal conserves up to 40,000 gallons or more per year. Waterless urinals are inexpensive to purchase and install, since there is no flushing mechanism. All that is required is a drainage outlet. Maintenance is reduced to a periodic changing of the cartridge and quick cleanup. We have eliminated costs associated with stuck or broken valves from normal wear and vandalism, plus reduced pipe cleaning, since lines remain free of calcification due to no hard water running through them. Also, reduced energy costs associated with transporting water to and from urinals.
