PU: Urine leaks at high schools foul the air


Well, this stinks.

One student, Caleb Rader, 15, told the Sun-Sentinel that the urine "was seeping through the hallway into the classroom next door."

It was supposed to have been a green initiative: About seven years ago, officials at the Palm Beach County School District began swapping out hundreds of traditional flush urinals for the no-water variety to save about $100 a year in water billing for each urinal, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Now fixing the problem in the four high schools could cost a total of $500,000 — not exactly a piddly amount.

What went wrong?
