Open Air Reservoir Gets Peed in and City to Throw Away 38 Million Gallons of Water

Do these idiots not know that birds poop in their water all the time? Insane.
Check it out:

Portland officials are once again preparing to flush millions of gallons of treated water because someone urinated in a city reservoir.

Water Bureau Administrator David Shaff said 38 million gallons will be discarded after a 19-year-old was videotaped in the act Wednesday.

Three years ago, the city drained a 7.5-million-gallon reservoir at the same Mount Tabor location in southeast Portland.

The open reservoirs hold water that’s already been treated and goes directly into mains for distribution to customers.

The urine poses little risk — animals routinely deposit waste without creating a public health crisis — but Shaff said he doesn’t want to serve water that was deliberately tainted.
