Nonsense. The architects must be trying to add in berms to contain the water when all they really need is some very mild pitch in the floor in that area. Even if that's not sufficient to contain all the water it will get a large percentage of it.

We've asked for drains under the safety showers and were told that wouldn't be possible because in order to be ADA compliant and have drains, the safety showers would take up too much space- has anyone encountered such an argument?(Note, we're extremely constrained on space due to some very complicated politics I won't go into here, so making the labs bigger is not an option.)Thanks,Melissa AndersonInstructorPasadena City College
