Not sure what they think the hotel should have done to prevent it. But never let that stand in the way of a lawyer seeking fees

Water tasted like chicken soup, but could have used more salt.

Expect a multi-antibiotic-resistant tuberculosis epidemic real soon now.

I'm still fuzzy on the purpose of these tanks.  Are they to supposed to supplement mains water pressure during times of peak use?  (Given the water situation in southern California, do water companies charge different rates at different times of the day?).  Given the lawsuits that are flying, I assume that this water wasn't simply used to provide a backup water supply for the fire sprinkler system...

As I understand, this tank was open from above.  So it was essentially a swimming pool.  Do these tanks also have swimming-pool-style filtration devices?  Seems like pumping the water to faucets would eventually pose a health risk even if corpses didn't find their way inside.

It's easier to pump water up to a tank up top and let gravity feed the taps, etc, than to try to do it all on demand. As to why they don't have a roof, not a clue. Gross.

When you climbed up to the hotel roof, did you see a sign that said "Dead White Girl Storage" on the water tank?

How does this fall under the "Business" tag. I can't imagine there's a living to be made from corpse-flavoured water.

No roof?  Probably not required.  Not that enclosing it keeps stuff out, unless the overflow has a duckbill check on it, all sorts of critters get up in there.

Years ago, pumping systems were on/off.  Today, they have variable speed motors, and you can get away without a tank - the system simply monitors the line pressure and maintains a constant pressure.
