Urban Wetland Pissoir

By Wetlands Work! for the Our City Festival. Check out their Facebook Page for visiting hours.

What’s a wetland? What to do with folks peeing on the streets? The Urban Wetland Pissoir will answer these and other questions. He is located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, at the corner of Norodom and Mao Tse Tung, and welcomes visitors!
The Urban Wetland Pissoir was born out of a project for Our City Festival Phnom Penh. The Pissoir consists of a shallow aquatic garden running several meters long. The UWP highlights the challenge of public urination and its subsequent health issues, and the broader function of wetlands in treating urban wastewater, while offering an aesthetic solution. Staff and interns at Wetlands Works! Inc. designed and built the Pissoir as an interactive, educational and artistic installation.
