Quotes

...Dobson, a 20-year-old, said the project could[1] "save enough water to fill an olympic-sized swimming pool 26 times" per year, the BBC reports. Him and Torr are representing the UEA in the Npower Future Lea
As for if it's sanitary or not, including in the case of public showers, the students have done their research on that too. "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" Dobson said
Mr Dobson told BBC News: "we've done the maths, and this project stands to have a phenomenal impact."
