"DILUTION IS THE SOLUTION!"--- Our summer desert-like climate produces conditions that will cause the beaches to smell like human urine if people urinate on shore. Urine deposited onto the beaches can create a strong odor and attract insects. The lack of consistent summer rainfall means the urine does not get quickly washed away. If in doubt on a highly-used river, urinate into the water. The dilution factor is so great that the impact on water quality is negligible.
