Health experts said the incident would not have caused any harm to people in the city of Portland, who are supplied with drinking water from the reservoir. They said the average human bladder holds only six to eight ounces, and the urine would have been vastly diluted
But David Shaff, an administrator at the Portland Water Bureau, defended the decision to empty the lake. "There are people who will say it's an over reaction. I don't think so. I think what you have to deal with here is the 'yuck' factor," "I can imagine how many people would be saying 'I made orange juice with that water this morning.' "Do you want to drink pee? Most people are going to be pretty damn squeamish about that." he said.

David Shaff needs Shafting. He should be sent the Bill.
Surely that's why they treat the water before it gets to your tap!!!
What about all the insects, flies, beetles, dead moths, dead fish, animal dung etc
Complete and Utter Madness - and they say there's a water shortage.
