Low-flow toilets cause a stink in SF

SF tries to be at the cutting edge of environmentalism. Sometimes they get it right, sometimes not. Newer ultra low flush toilets don't generate enough water for the SF sewer system to cleanse itself. The result is a big stink. Oddly the city plans to flush the sewer with highly concentrated bleach. While I don't want the rotten egg smell of sewage near my home or work, I'm not a fan of concentrated bleach smell either. Is the world running out of water? What effect will concentrated bleach have on sewage treatment plants?
