"We're going to be monitoring it and see how long it stays fresh and clear,"

About 13 seconds, ya goobers. It's an outdoor pond. Strain the chunks out and send it to town.

35 million gallons of pee, that kid did some heavy drinking, heck he should have just went to the Budweiser plant and just start filling bottles, like nobody could tell the difference anyways

What a strange brew that would be.
 
2014-05-01 01:04:44 AM  
Instead, about 35 million gallons have been diverted from kidney-shaped Reservoir 5 to an empty reservoir to determine how long its quality can last as a public water feature.

Suddenly, it all makes sense...

Don't let people who don't know how things work decide anything.  Oppose them at the risk of your job.  Let them know and I'm sure they will respect your position.  Seriously its so stupid that someone's intention must have been to have the water diverted.  Birds, fish, bears piss in it.  Shhhhhhhh don't tell them because they probably don't know that.

/or just willful ignorance.
 
2014-05-01 01:25:51 AM  
I just find myself extremely fortunate that I live in a community that has a water reservoir that can sustain itself with absolutely no pollution from outside sources, and even if it did, it'd be cleaned thoroughly 100%.

Never touch the stuff.

Fish fark in it.

"And now that we had to divert those 35 million gallons of water, we're going to raise prices because we have less supply."

That or someone at the sewer system end who gets paid by volume processed is giving a big kickback. "Oh, sure I can spot you $1000 if you send 35 million gallons of water I don't actually have to treat."

I once got paid $28 to pee into a lake on camera.

I think they ended up getting to replace the whole lake with new water because of my pee for a whole buncha money.

But it did feel nice peeing in that lake.

You're lucky you have plenty of water and can afford this kind of idiocy. People down here in SoCal will probably be using their pool water to keep their plants alive this summer.

it is RIDICULOUS
the idea the water was biologically and chemically PURE before he pissed in it, and somehow INSANELY deadly after the piss ... is ... farking bat shiat crazy.

someone should spend a day or 10 video taping the reservoir, and show all the stuff that happens to the water.

argh, these luddites make me crazy, well crazier than normal

This.

AFAIk, it's an OPEN reservoir . I think a teens' piss is the LEAST of their concern in this regard.

Also thinking this.  The 'lake' down the road from me, is our reservoir.  It is treated like any other lake, with fishing, swimming, and boating.  We just recently reopened as a reservoir, because the city's pop. has dropped enough to not need Detroit's city water, but no new rules as for how folks are to treat the reservoir.  It isn't like they simply attached a pipe and started pumping it straight to the water tower, they built a new treatment system to take over for Detroit's treatment system.

/I'm really glad we aren't use the D's water anymore, that may have been part of our problem

2014-05-01 10:05:43 AM  
My drinking water comes out of the Missouri river. I have peed into that same river hundreds of times while fishing from a boat. I've swam in that river. I've watched cows pee into it. I've caught male fish out of it that were actively "milking" (hint: that ain't milk). All of that concerns me far less than the agricultural runoff that's undoubtedly flowing into it from the surrounding corn fields and cattle lots. But, yeah. Pee gross. Ew. I peed into the river just last weekend, so we should probably drain it and start over just to be safe.

//I guess I drink my own pee, in a roundabout way. Then again, so do most of the rest of you, you probably just don't know it.

won't be an issue much longer as those reservoirs are going to be taken off line next year

what will fark submitters do then?

If I lived anywhere near there I would photoshop a picture of me dropping a deuce in the reservoir (with my face obscured) and then send it to all the news outlets. I just want to see them drain a reservoir completely and then scrub the bottom with clorox.

These morans have lost all common sense. I guess they are unaware that animals don't have their own outhouses.
 
2014-05-01 11:47:14 AM  
I work in a water testing laboratory that tests public water systems.  I sincerely doubt that there is anything in a single person's urine that will contaminate a water body larger than a swimming pool significantly enough to go over any of the FDA or state limits for contaminants in water.  Even a floating turd is unlikely to spread enough E.Coli to get a positive hit within in a 120mL sample bottle.

But then again, some things, such as odor and taste, are not regulated.  Maybe this kid lived exclusively off asparagus and valerian root for the last ten years, and built up a concentration of ass-smell that this world has naught yet seen, unloaded it into the lake, and caused concern for pipe erosion when it was transported to the city.

More like an article from The Oregonian.  They're pretty hard to tell apart most days.
