City of Portland has banned urinals in the $195 million remodel of
the Portland Building, which houses administrative offices for the
city. While urinals use less water than toilets, they are a relic of

Administrative Officer Tom Rinehart explained the urinal ban in an
email to employees last February. “We will continue to have
