OP-T2-44: Waterless Urinals
|0.25 / 0.25||
Environmental Safety, Sustainability and Risk
Does the institution use at least one waterless urinal?:
A brief description of the technology employed:
The University of Maryland does have a few waterless urinals, most of which are in our South Campus Dining Hall. The urinals are drained by gravity and have charcoal filters that need to be replaced every 3-6 months. Over time they can start to accumulate a smell, so they need to be cleaned every few months. One waterless urinal can save about 20,000 gallons of water per year.
