    Default University Water Sports?

    Water Sports
    University students are being urged to urinate in the shower in a bid to save water.
    It is the brainchild of students Debs Torr and Chris Dobson, from the University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich.
    They want the university's 15,000 students to take their first wee of the day while having their morning shower.

    There would be savings of 720m litres annually if everybody in the UK took part
    42.5m per year if population of East Anglia backed campaign
    125k per year if all UEA students accepted challenge
    "As long as the water is flowing there is no hygiene risk as urine is sterile but we would encourage that every person using the same shower consents to the challenge and if not that they don't take part."
    A UEA spokeswoman said the university supported "students in their efforts in these initiatives and encouraged all forms of enterprising, entrepreneurial and employability activity".

    Urged? My uni sports team was eco friendly 20 years before water charges so.
