San Francisco to use urine-repellent paint to stop public urination

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — San Francisco is going to double the number of city walls it covers in a urine-repellent paint in order to stop public urination.

The Public Works Department painted the repellent on nine walls in the Tenderloin, the Mission, and south of Market in July. The painted surfaces make urine bounce right back on the culprit. So far, it’s working.

San Francisco plans to cover eight more walls with the paint in the neighborhoods with the most problems.

The paint was first used in Germany.
