YORBA LINDA, CALIF. — My letter to the editor that appeared in the October issue of CONTRACTOR magazine regarding politics and non-water urinals was clearly inappropriate ("Politics in play on lead bill, waterless urinals," pg. 31 ). What was an attempt at light-hearted humor was certainly not communicated as such and I take responsibility for that.

I apologize to Falcon Waterfree Technologies and the other manufacturers of these products for inferring something about politics for which I had no information.

Non-water urinals have their place in the building industry and new construction as viable water-saving fixtures. Independent testing of non-water urinals is ongoing and, as always with the water utility industry, the results of such work will be made public when it is completed.
